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

    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?!

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

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

    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!

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

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