Drunken Ramblings. Also, Robots!

Life here at ISB Headquarters, much like that of a costumed vigilante, is an adventure every day. And today's adventure just happened to involve a bottle of Long Island Iced Tea and a drinking game to go along with the new episode of Degrassi.

Unfortunately, I decided to take drinks when anyone said anything undeniably Canadian and whenever anyone had an Emotional Moment, and then followed it up with a viewing of my new Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo DVD. As a result, right now I'm in no condition right now to do anything but trip over another vacuum cleaner and pass out mumbling about Turbo, Ozone, and the Downtown Sasquatch.

But, since you came all this way, allow me to direct your attention to one of the most ridiculously awesome covers I've ever seen, August of 1962's Detective Comics #303:

Seriously, those aren't just robots, they're invisible robots. And they were built by what appears to be a midget in a business suit with a giant head who hangs out on a throne in a dungeon that he apparently built at the bottom of a well.

And it seems he's also a wizard.

No further explanation should be necessary.

Man o man, that room is decidedly non-Euclidian. Does this guy have his hideout in a tourist trap?

No, it's a hideout under his parents house, clearly. I mean, what else would explain such crazed meglomania?

"...a bottle of Long Island Iced Tea?"

Chris, what the sweet hell are you doing buying pre-mixed crap like that?

Drink like a man, already!

Mixing my own drinks puts another step between "purchase" and "drunk," Kevin, and as todays' modern comics blogger, I don't have that kind of time.

Somebody needs to make a poster of that cover, A.S.A.P. Man, I love how those robots look like they marched right off a 1920's pulp magazine cover. And how the Wizard's hideout is apparently located inside a really depressing funhouse.

A Wizard of ONE THOUSAND Menaces!

Yes, Chris, this is awesome.
