Those creases in my copy of this comic will make it easy to spot these scans when they pop up on other sites.

So every once in a while, I remember that Ambush Bug totally killed a dude during his first appearance in DC Comics Presents #52:

Of course, they started to go in a totally different direction with the character right after this appearance, leaning more towards “lighthearted parodic fourth-wall breaking goofball” rather than “creepy murderous dude.” Though you get a little bit of “creepy murderous dude” in Bug’s next appearance, when he ties a Superman cape to an alien and drops him off a building. The alien doesn’t die, but still, not for lack of trying.

Also featured in this issue, and speaking of “creepy” – a rare appearance of Ambush Bug’s unmasked face:

BONUS: everyone loves a parade, and the parade in this very issue features guest-appearances by Cerebus and Fred Hembeck Superman:

…as well as one of the elves from Elfquest:

I forget the character’s name. It’s “Frodo” or something, right?
