Okay, wait, maybe I sort of kind of get part of this: are they actually peeing in the snow? And Green Lantern’s is green for some reason, but the other guys’ are… white??
No, the more I think I get it, the more confused I am.

Robb Armstrong: “I didn’t want to be the only cartoonist not to use the Superman/phonebooth gag this month”

They announced that Diane Lane is going to play Martha Kent in the new Superman movie. Diane Lane. Superman’s mother. How did all that time pass when I wasn’t looking?
And today’s trivia question: What was Diane Lane’s previous Superman connection?

These were back-to-back on my Chronicle page this past Friday. The second one (Speed Bump) is a definite CIDU, though: “Superman flavor”??

A bit off-topic, I guess, but…
I’ve been wondering how religion can exist at all in the comic book world, given what the people see around them: Creating life has been done and done some more. Change water into wine? Dozens of people can do that. The Scarlet Witch can change the very nature of reality without pausing from putting on her make-up.
That whole resurrection thing? Please! Superman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Jason Todd, Electra, Jean Grey, Jean Grey, Jean Grey… Just over the past month or so, the Flash, Kid Flash and Superboy all returned from the dead. We’re not talking “missing and presumed dead” here, but dead-as-a-doorbell, bodies buried. Captain America is supposedly coming back this week. Later this summer, apparently, a slew of dead DC characters are coming back en masse. True, they’ll be sort-of zombies, but you can bet that the more popular characters will somehow end up whole. Comic book heroes die, nobody even bothers to cancel their newspaper deliveries.
So in the DC and Marvel Universes, how is it possible for anybody to look at God/Jesus/Allah and see Somebody worthy of worship?

I have a feeling Lois didn’t really think through this cunning plan…
Just for the record, any mention of Larry Niven, or that article of his which I’m sure he regrets ever having written, will be considered this thread’s equivalent of Godwin’s Law.

These two were side-by-side on my Houston Chronicle comics page Thursday. The Speed Bump
is a CIDU, while the Argyle Sweater
is a LOL.
Has anybody actually heard the Captain America cartoon theme since 1968 or so? The Spider-Man theme has found a permanent place in the popular consciousness, but I don’t believe anybody under the age of 45 will be familiar with Cap’s. Normally this would get the Look Geezers! Comics! tag, but Marvel Comics is promoting the hell out of Captain America’s 70th anniversary this week, so I’m inclined to grant it special dispensation as a tribute strip.

A couple of people sent me this. I see it simply as Superbaby’s cape being turned around to make a bib. Any dissenting opinions?
