"Unfortunate" Comics, Part One ~~ A "Comical Wednesday" Post

Here's a two-part Comical Wednesday post, fellow babies. These are items which, for one reason or another, I've decided to call "Unfortunate Comics!"

First, a category I call "Low Blow." Now, was it the artist or the scripter who was responsible for the unfortunate -- There's that word again! -- placement of the body hits here?

This is a category I call "Watch Your Hand, Buddy!" It kinda speaks for itself.

Here's something unusual. The boy superhero, Captain Marvel Junior, had an odd magic word -- two words, actually -- which transformed him from "crippled newsboy Freddy Freeman" to Captain Marvel Jr.: "Captain Marvel!" (Long story.) Thus, he was unable to say his own name without changing to or from his superheroic identity!

Ummm... When the writers remembered that fact, that is! (In other words, Junior should have wound up in the reservoir!)

Now, these aren't comic books, but rather, comic book characters! But I still wanna include them, and label them "What Were They Thinking?!?"

And finally (for today) here's the cover to Police Comics #116.

Pretty cool cover, innit? Yeahhhh, except for one thing, which is not immediately apparent unless you've read the comic, as I have: The cover shows a scene from the very end of the story, a scene which shows who the story's "bad guy" is and how the hero catches him! Talk about spoilers!

And that's it for today. See you next week.

Thanks for your time.


  1. ha. give wolvie a blow eh...err...and the batman water pistol is just wrong on multiple levels...

  2. I think they knew exactly what they were doing! lol....

  3. Replies
    1. yeah, I think someone was having some fun....

  4. I love it when a superhero grabs my boob. I love it when just about anybody grabs my boob.


  5. Great stuff! My exposure to comics was limited to Archie and Mad Magazine.

    I agree w/ Bets. They probably thought it was an inside joke. Parents must have been really lame in those days.

  6. LOL head and foot at the same time, that takes skill. Wolvie's super healing must be down if he needs to be blown up. agreed, batman is just wrong.

  7. Yep. Hell of a way to treat Batman.

  8. These are awesome and I'm still laughing at the Batman water gun.

    1. That seems to have provoked the most reaction...

  9. maybe you think Im a little crazy the most I love in the comics issues is the drawings I love them maybe because remind me this time when I was little only love to read comics! anyway I loved draw too!
    and love especially old comics issues!

    1. Crazy? Why would a comics fan like myself think you're crazy for liking the drawings? Ha. And I didn't know you could draw.

    2. Thanks ! Yes sometimes I love to draw.
