So there was this question from a late ’70s installment of Bob Rozakis’ Answer Man column:
I was a bit amused by someone’s need to have this question answered. Then again, there was no easily-accessible public Internet at the time…how else were you gonna find out?
‘Course, we all know the answer now:
Why Superman even put up with Jimmy, I have no idea.
Oh, and don’t forget this:
Hey, hey…less crying, more flying, pal.
Anyway, the Answer Man column, for at least part of its run, was part of DC’s “Daily Planet” news/advertising page…this was the headline story of this particular installment:
Well, that’s nice. I’m sure those two crazy kids will make it work. See, Superman, there’s no reason to cry on this, the happiest of days!
In other news:
- Chris Sims, Benjamin Birdie, Jen Vaughn, and the World’s Most Handsome Man, David Wolkin, team up to play live action Dungeons & Dragons and simultaneously create pure hilarity.
- Don’t remember if I linked this before, but it turned up in my Swamp Thing Google alerts feed (…what? What?) and if I posted it before, here it is again: a very nice 2006 drawing of Swamp Thing and Abby by Michael Zulli. Maybe kinda Not Safe for Work, since Abby’s naked, though not showing any naughty bits. Come to think of it, Swamp Thing’s naked in the picture, too. Just look at him, letting his tubers just dangle out there like that.
- Here’s a short bit about Comico’s Black Book anniversary comic. (Hey, I have one of those!) There’s also a short blurb about the first volume of the Comics Interview compilation project, which I talked about a few days ago…I actually have a copy in my possession now, courtesy of the publishers, and it’s quite the impressive tome. I may have more to say about it later, but it’s hard to review, aside from pointing out that if you’re looking for a large collection of interviews with a wide variety of interesting people, here it is! I’ve been enjoying reading through it, and if you have an interest in comics history, you probably will, too.
- Pals Dorian and Ken have their latest movie trailers review over at The Bureau Chiefs. I love it when they do this column.
