Nonsense Monday

It’s another gruesome Monday, and I’ve got no interest in blogging anything.

So here’s a chicken and a little boy smoking a cigarette.

Now back to the salt mines with all of us…

The Best Sound Effect Ever

I’ve never been able to figure out which comic this panel came from (which is why I’ve never used it for Friday Night Fights), but it never fails to make me happy.

HulkThorBathroom

I bet if you were ever around during a fight where Thor and the Hulk were smashing cars around, you’d need to go to the bathroom, too.

((ADDENDUM: In the comments, Habbakuk identifies the issue as “The Incredible Hulk #300 – mindless Hulk post-Secret Wars rampaging and being fought by all the different heroes before being banished by Doctor Strange to The Crossroads.” Many thanks, Habakkuk!))

Spring Has Sprung

According to my calendar, today is the first day of spring. So the nice weather can start riiiiiight about… now. And warm temperatures, please — not extreme wind, thunderstorms, or tornadoes, please.

So to commemorate this hopefully happy occasion, here’s a bunch of comics dedicated to spring.

Archie-SpringBreak

FranklinRichards-SpringBreak

Alf-SpringSpecial

Lobo-SpringBreak

Hellraiser-SpringSlaughter

(Yeah, “Hellraiser Spring Slaughter.” Anything for a seasonal tie-in, I guess.)

WaltKelly-SpringtimeTales

Turok-SpringBreak

Aspen-Spring

Disney-SpringFever

Seriously, ready for that nice weather right now. I mean now. Now, please. Now? Okay, okay, how ’bout riiiight… now.

Bah, next thing you know, we’ll have a blizzard, just to spite me…

Deadpool Recommends my Blog

Daylight Savings Time is really doin’ a number on my ability to stay awake and concentrate on much of anything, so I ain’t thought of a thing worth blogging about.

So instead, here’s a couple panels of Deadpool plugging this blog.

Deadpool-HeroSandwich-500

Because you know a guy aware of the Fourth Wall is probably reading Z-list comics blogs, right?

(Thanks to Derek Moreland for the scans)

(Also, hoping I didn’t have to reduce that too small for y’all to be able to read.)

Adoption Option

In case you haven’t noticed, November is National Adoption Awareness Month. Why am I writing about it now? Well, obviously, because it’s a great cause, an important celebration of adoptees and adoptive families, and a fantastic goal of getting more children adopted into loving families.

And also because maybe I don’t have anything else to write about today.

So should we as comic fans care about adoptees? Well, of course we should! Without adoptees and adoptive families, we wouldn’t have many of our favorite characters!

Clark Kent!

Dick Grayson!

Little Orphan Annie!

Rogue!

Roy Harper!

Donna Troy!

Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa!

Tempest!

Jessica Jones!

Mia Dearden!

Swee’Pea!

Garfield Logan!

Hellboy!

Tim Drake!

Astro Boy!

Aquaman!

and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

So won’t you and your family consider adoption? The kid you adopt today could be the superhero of tomorrow…
