I am generally disinterested in all things Woody Woodpecker, but I shall make an exception for this comic.

Found this 1953 promotional comic while just sorta randomly going through the Grand Comics Database, and now there is almost nothing I want to know more than how our friend Scotty MacTape, of the Clan MacTape, helps Woody defeat an invading fleet of alien spacecraft with rolls of Scotch Tape, new formula or no.

I’ll have to track down a copy of this for myself someday, though perhaps I can wait ’til a slightly less dear example happens along. In the meantime, I’ll just assume Scotty uses his taping powers to strap together a whole bunch of cabers into one giant uber-caber that Woody, using the immense strength borne of his nigh-infinite well of anger, tosses into the Martian forces, giving them what-for and all that.

    A comic being directly associated with TAPE seems kind of WRONG.

    I find the discontinuity between their facial expressions extremely disconcerting.

    Can someone please photoshop that knife-in-the-teeth Woody into a copy of “Suddenly… Korea!”?

    Very courteous of the invasion fleet to clearly label their ships with their point of origin as named by their victims.
