  1. Jeff,

    Maybe you just need to run a weekly segment on the awesomeness that is the Bulletman comics. I hope you have more issues handy.

  2. Thankfully there are still many issues to go through on the Golden Age Comics site, so we’re in luck. I know I need to mix it up with some other stuff, but there’s just so MUCH to love in these Bulletman comics! I mean, where else are you going to find ninja Nazi stealth tanks, I ask you?!

  4. I just thought it was funny that the opening line of a highly publicized play was “Ooo, people are asleep!” Not exactly gripping drama.

  5. This is why you NEVER hire actors with narcolepsy, no matter how good they are…

  6. Jeff,

    Sadly, when I try to go to the Golden Age Comics site in the UK I get an error message and a bunch of techie gibberish. I hope they fix this soon. I need my daily dose of Bullet Man. It makes me feel so superior! 🙂

    I think the actress is demonstrating the same clever observational talents as Bulletgirl…
    Isn’t that guy supposed to be Dead, rather than asleep!

  8. I love that the play isn’t well-liked, or famous, or even highly anticipated… just highly publicized.

  9. Niall, you can download the first 16 Bulletman comics here: http://goldenagecomics.co.uk/index.php?cid=21

  10. Oh I love this “plav”. In the next scene, Hunchy Winthrop puts the candle out and says, “He sleeps forevermore, My Lady.” Bravo!
