The Flash Times Five Is Fatal!

Somebody in one of the letters pages once said that the joy of The Flash was that it was complete nonsense played with a straight face, and that to complain about The Scarlet Speedster running on the crystal molecules of clouds was missing the point.
This utterly cherishable issue proves that point succintly, and you can only read it with a huge grin on your face.
By the way, I guess Stuart wasn't fully in the show when they did this skit, else he'd've been there.
Mind you, he'd probably have turned up as Jay Garrick...

The Supercats: The Music Master

Think I'll just post this particular Supercats adventure without comment, except to say it's as mad as a DC Silver Age story. My head hurts from this one.

The Kids From Rec. Road Present: Stan & Jack!

This week on the ol' twitter, I took it upon myself to post a few pages a day of my old thing Stan & Jack ( all about you-know-who ).
To my pleasant surprise, it's gone down rather well, so, as I'm still knee-deep in the corporate paying gig, I thought I'd put the 1st issue up on The Kids site for a) those on twitter who want to read it in one go and b) You regulars who never saw it!

While over at:

We're talking Bronze Age redesigns. What costume, or even full character reboots worked? And which ones really, really didn't?

Archie Goodwin & John Severin's Enemy!

There was a fair bit of talk on the old twittersphere over the weekend about it being the birthday of the late, great Archie Goodwin, one of comics' greatest ever writers & editors.
So, still being in a Goodwin kinda mood, here's a beauty of a story from Archie, from Warren's extremely short-lived war book Blazing Combat.
You can see Goodwin here still slightly in thrall to Harvey Kurtzman, and the way he structured his EC war books, but it's still recognisably Archie, because it's a solid, proper story with a beginning, middle and end.
Oh, and John Severin? Yeah, he could draw a bit.

The Perishers On Holiday

Well, Summer's officially over ( in fact it's raining buckets round my way ), but where did The Perishers go on holiday this year? Well, the same broken down train station, the same crabgrass covered field, and the same seaside rock pool for Boot to stare into, that they go to every year.
These are 1970's working class kids from Sarf London after all, no one's hopping on a package flight to Majorca, even if Marlon could spell it.
