    I think I speak for all your readers when I say, “Eeeeew!” 🙂

    Admit it, Niall, his hair does look like it would smell nice, doesn’t it?

  3. Avatar Loki says:

    well, I think there is such a thing as a hair fetish…maybe?

    Dare you do a search? Go ahead, turn off Google’s safe search and tell us what you find for ‘hair fetish’.

    And his name is T-Man? Or is some other creepy old man T-Man?

    lol@kingmonkey, that is so, so true.

    Frankie, yes, that guy is the titular T-Man (for Treasury Man). There were a lot of Secret Super Agent type books in the Forties and early Fifties, partly a result I would guess of the shift from WW2 to the Cold War and its emphasis on skullduggery.

    Unlike Radar, the International Police agent I’ve profiled a few times in the Random Panels, T-Man doesn’t appear to have any super powers other than the most fragrant follicles you’ll ever sniff.

    On an unrelated note, it’s kind of creepy how much he looks like The Comedian in this panel, although in the rest of the book he doesn’t so much.

    I dared to do the search, and, not surprisingly, there is a hair fetish. Everyone happy now?
