It reads “HUNK” at twelve o’clock!

(From "Fantastic Comics" number 6. No date, but I'm guessing 1939?)

  1. Let me guess…this is from story entitled “The Adventures of the Fantastic Lurch Twins!”

  2. Wow…just, wow. This is the worst drawn professional comic panel I’ve ever laid eyes on, and I’ve read Liefeld’s stuff before. This…this is just aweful. I think I could draw better characters than this and I have the artistic skill of a 3-year-old. They have no expressions on their faces, they don’t have their mouths open, and, if it wasn’t for the fact that this was made before computers, I would have said that someone just copy/pasted his face onto her…

  3. I’m pretty sure these are Beavis and Butthead’s parents.

    I’m assuming the guy’s name is “Space” but why is the woman using it sarcastically?

  5. Judging by which side of the spaceship the driver is on they might be British. If my diet included eel pie and blood pudding I might look constipated too.

  6. Okay, found out that this is from 1940, and the dude is Sub Saunders. Still no idea who is perturbed female companion is.

  7. Myro – outstanding work, sir! I think, however, that our protaganist is “Space Smith.” The woman must be his girlfriend, “The Forehead,” er, Dianna.

  8. dan im completely with you on that, butthead is very easy to see in the spaceman.

  9. Somebody scared Frankenstein’s monster, and he turned white.

  10. John (7): That would make more sense, thank you. My research is only as thorough as the time I have to put into it, and I’m certainly not infallible.

    She sure as heck doesn’t need shoulder pads.

  12. Oh Internets…how you distract me so?

    …note the inset panel with Space and Dianna. Look familiar?

  13. @John(12): Yes, it does look familiar, but in that story, they’re apparently riding in a brick-oven pizza oven.
