    At that time and age people didn’t go straight to the bad things. A lot of the reasons for the side kicks was because after World War 2 the were a lot of boys without fathers. So comics tried to show a positive in their life, to let them know that there were good male role models to look up to. We are coming to that again because of the war. The role models our children need to look up to, are not the ones with the sick thoughts being the first thing that pop into their minds. Comic book have been and still should be out their to help our children in their life, not to lead them down the roads that should not be traveled. Comic books help people and they had a big part in my life as will. I wish it could be that way again. This is what I believe and I also believe that someone should not force what they believe on others, so I hope that I do not offend anyone with what I have said.

    Good thoughts Hammerknight, but pretty much everything here is meant to be light-hearted tongue-in-cheek. Comics meant a lot to me growing up too (and still do), but at heart they’re supposed to be fun. And if we can’t laugh at our own silly obsessions, then that would be pretty sad.

    In other words, if you’re going to get the most out of this site, do what I do — put your brain in neutral and just enjoy being silly. My motto is, you’re only young once, but you can be immature the rest of your life 🙂

    That is true Jeff.

    Is it just me, or does the pharmacist look like a caricature of a Nazi mad scientist, with the kid giving him a ‘Sieg Heil’?
