Got to Have a Jones for This, Jones for That

I hope Cory survives Afghanistan long enough to enjoy his complete Starbuck Jones collection: at this rate it will take Holly until June to round up all seven issues. Today’s comic cover comes courtesy of Batiuk’s fellow midwesterner, Bob Layton. Naturally, TB applies his own magic touch, weirdly inserting the robot from Joe Staton’s SJ #7 cover at the top. As for the bottom: Holly shows off her newly acquired comics-grading vocabulary, fat Funky’s thoughts immediately turn to food, and the rest of us shudder to think what else John might have in his collection with pages that are “aged and creamy”.

  1. Why is it that in the Sunday comics, Funky and Crazy Harry suddenly age at least 20 years?

    Does he even read these things over once he writes them down? It seems he is just writing these things for the snarkers’ benefit!

    He’s upped the ick factor once again. Does “The comic books that Crazy Harry loved as a teenager, but had to sell, turn out to be aged and creamy” beat out “Darin simultaneously eats peanut butter sandwiches and changes dirty diapers ” for ickiest episode of the year?

    Or does “Harry’s wife expected to put out after being lavished with cupcakes and pizza” still have that honor?

  4. Maybe it’s just me, but comic books and cheese shouldn’t be described with the same termenology.

    “Aged and creamy”???? “Sounds delicious”???? I feel like I’m going to be sick.

    “Creamy” as used here means a slight but noticeable texture and color change, most noticeable in the unprinted page and panel borders. At least that’s what I was told.

  7. Nothing remotely related to DSH John should ever be described as “aged and creamy.”

    Okay fellow snarkers….I know I know that Batyuck failed in comic continuity class….but here goes anyways:
    Oh Wow… DSH gave Holly a Starbucks Jones # 123….at 10 cents ya say?
    With 12 issues per year….and since comic books haven’t been 10 cents since 1963….that puts the holy issue #1 back some where around 1953.
    You know that one Flunky purchased as a teen, based on a recommendation from himself from the future.
    Time travel in the funky universe is really quite simple: Just hit someone over the head with a bottle of champagne and put in 3 nickles…they’ll be gone for a thousand years but to us it will only seem like a million.

    Cheers to Tom’s friends for their cool pulp sci-fi art (and dat ass), but jeers to Batiuk for using them as alleged 60’s comic book covers despite not resembling the silver age art style at all.

    I guess the point of squishing his little Funky bubbles into these “tribute” strips is to avoid confusing his readers (lol). I mean it CAN’T be to “further” the “plot” or anything, right? But honestly, would anyone notice or care if he just left them out? It’s so obtrusive as well as stupid, they’d look so much better without his irrelevant scribblings.
