    Such sad octopus eyes. I think Ethyl’s got a thing for Captain Manuel. This can’t end well.

  • Bear says:

    Oh, Manuel. You so crazy.

  • CinqO says:

    The zooming panel detail is my favorite reoccurring Sterling joke.

  • Bully says:

    You’d be crazy not to trust that octopus!

    Nice to see you’ve been hitting those Heap reprints! Completely off the subject question – having never encountered Wolverine’s brother Dog before his current appearance in W & the X-men recently, I was wondering if he’d always been drawn to look like William Loeb’s Wolverine McAllister? Journey is possibly my favorite series ever and I thought this was extremely funny. Thanks Mike, didn’t know where else to ask!

  • I nominate “You are crazy to trust that octopus, Manuel” as this year’s signature catch-phrase.

  • IT says:

    How could you not trust a face like that?

  • Harvey Jerkwater says:

    The urge to fuse this with another Mikester gag is powerful.

    “You are crazy to trust that octopus, Manuel!”

    Yikes. Project Wonderful Presents: A Slightly Less Than Safe For Work Ad.

  • Mikester says:

    Adam – Sorry, my settings are supposed to block ads like those, but sometimes they get through!

  • Adam says:

    Hey, no problem. It was certainly attention grabbing. I’m certain it’s only a matter of time before it ends up a resin statue in an issue of Previews.

    Is the original issue really Airboy Comics #4 #2? Or is that a typo? Comics sure have messed up numbering schemes sometimes.
