A Graphical Sorbet

Between Tarot, early 90s X-Men, and last night's delve into the poorly-printed madness of Charlton Comics, there's been a lot of negativity here on the ISB, and while I'm perfectly happy to sit here taking potshots at massive, slow-moving targets like that motley lineup, I don't really want to be known as that one comics blogger who complains all the time.

So to that effect, I'd like to post something to break things up a little bit tonight, something pure and joyful to cleanse the palate, as it were. But what?

Ah yes. That'll do, Lois. That'll do.

Incidentally, I do feel compelled to mention that that story--"The Truth Mirror!" from Action Comics #269--involves Lois getting Merlin the Wizard's magic mirror, a priceless artifact which always reveals the truth and which saves her life on two occasions, and is then chucked into a volcano by Superman so that nobody'll find out his secret identity.

Okay, so maybe I'm not done complaining. But really, that one was asking for it.

BONUS FEATURE: More Midget Mayhem!

Keeping up his once-per-epoch update schedule, Mark Hale has used the above picture to make a fantastic comic strip joke. Dig it!

"Get out, you midget burglar...!" That's lifted from Shakespeare, right?

Aaah, nothing like the classics.
By the way, isn't pitching a priceless artifact into a volcano something of a dickish thing for Superman to do? Sheesh.

At first glance, I thought this panel was from the Family Circus arc of my dreams.

I seem to recall an old Shadow radio show that dealt with a similar menace, although the results were more Golden Age Batman than Silver Age Lois Lane. If I remeber this right, the Shadow (Orson Welles) is visiting friends in the country who have adopted a 10yr old boy (wait for it...). At some point, Fred Flintstone, who is also there posing as a European Count, is murdered. The Shadow reveals that the killer was the boy, in reality a midget fugitive who had engineered his own adoption by the unwitting couple, which leads to something like the following:

"Mwoahahaha! You can't shoot me, Skippy! I have clouded your mind and made myself invisible!"


"Nuts ta youse, Shadow! I'm lamming outta here!"

At which point Skippy was eaten by a dog.

Your move, Lois.

How many times have I told you, Baby Finster,...NOT TO PLAY WITH THE DIRTY MONEY!?

Lois Lane and Bugs Bunny...BOTH owned by Warner Bros. and both dealing with midget burglers.


I think not.

isn't this basically the plot of the last Wayans movie, Little Man?
