Plausible Denial

I just want you all to know that under no circumstances did I giggle like a schoolgirl when I saw this cover blurb from Adventure Comics #332:

In fact, I managed to keep it together just long enough to get to the splash page.

That one almost killed me.

And it pretty much continues like that for the entirity of A Three-Part Novel Complete In This Issue, with the entire Legion talking about the Super-Moby Dick of Outer Spaaaace mixed in with assertions that Herman Melville's famous novel was based purely on fact. It'll get to the point where you're almost desensitized to it, and then boom.

Lighting Lad'll gear up to tackle the Super-Moby Dick with his new and more powerful right hand.

When wossname mentioned this to Alan Moore during that radio interview, Moore asked "are you sure this wasn't some wonderful dream you had?"

Because in space, regular Moby Dicks just don't cut it.

Well, I always knew that Moby was a dick (I don't think the Southside video was an act), but I can't imagine what a Super-Moby would be like.

While not entirely based on fact, Moby Dick probably had some large helpings of it. Before he started writing Herman Melville ran off to sea by working on a whaling ship and likely picked up a few story ideas in the process. His earlier novels were strongly autobiographical. Like the main character in Typee, Melville really did spend a year living with cannibals after jumping ship from a cruel captain.
