Dark Phoenix Saga

Link To Today’s Strip.

Yes Crazy, it’s been so long since we’ve seen unfettered enthusiasm expressed. It intrigued you so much your eyes are slipping down your face. I’m surprised that the very sight of it didn’t drive you completely blind.

Okay, so is it the Sponge Guy or Starbuck that is getting a rebooted comic book? My vote’s on Spongy, since the Clone Arc went over about as well as Justice League: The Rise of Arsenal. And why do I feel like this is Tommy Boy’s way of getting more comics storylines to juggle now that Starbuck Jones: THE MOVIE has been kind of played out. A movie that we never saw, nor even got the general reception of. What was it’s Rotten Tomatoes score? Did the public even like it? We’ll never know.

I think the colorist has never been into a comic’s store, since he keeps coloring the bagged and boarded comics a opaque shade of tan, like every comic is stored in an unlabeled manila envelope.

Or it’s a sad reality of the way DSH and Crazy sell off their backstock. $1.00 each, mystery special! No swapsies tradies! It’s the best way of hiding the fact that their entire inventory is back issues of The Death Of Superman arc and Image comics Youngbloods #1, by Rob Liefield.

    Pete’s not gonna have any idea what that means, Chester. You’ve got to use 1950s lingo with him.

    With the kind of komix DSHJawn is into, I imagine they HAVE to package them in brown paper wrapping!

    Hagglemore is being totally literal here, and the ashes he’s referring to are Lisa’s.

      Dead Saint Lisa rising from the dead in a homage to X-Men 101? I don’t know why Batiuk hasn’t already commissioned this!

    Meanwhile, Les just stormed into Batty’s office shrieking “ only I may have dramatic flourishes in this strip!”

  5. So….all of this is because some stupid character Pete came up with has had a profitable revival. It’ll take the rest of the week for Comic Book Guy to spit it out……

    Hey TB, Bud Grace is retired now why don’t you let him write the strip for a week? I bet most of your readers won’t even notice the surrealness of it. They’d just figure it was your normal hacky writing.

  7. I’m not sure I understand. How would Chester know something about SpongeBoy that Pete wouldn’t already know? Pete’s an insider for both SpongeBoy and Starbuck.

    Unless Pete’s gone cold turkey from comic books, in which case, why would be care? Besides, I find it impossible to believe that any of these people would cut themselves off from comic books completely.

  8. Also, Crazy’s got no right to complain about other’s expressions of enthusiasm. Wasn’t it his “happy dance” that was considered traumatizing?


  9. The role of Dead Skunk Head John today is being played by filmmaker Michael Moore.

    “Oh yeah…that jerk. What did he want?”

    “I dunno Pete, something about a “Phoenix rising from the ashes”. He didn’t elaborate.”

    “Huh? WTF does THAT mean? Oh well, did he leave any contact information?”

    “Uh, no, now that you mention it, he didn’t.”

    “What a dick.”

  11. Oh gads it’s going to be a full-on revival of the whole Batom Comics lineup with a New Batom Inc that somehow has all the rights to the most obscure character that appeared in a single issue, numbered ‘8’ because they were weird about first-issues back then, of one of those placeholder things that gets registered with the Copyright and Trademark Office to establish rights but never actually sold on any shelf anywhere. And Mopey Pete has to write them all.

  12. Double Sided Scooby Snack

    He drove all the way over there to give his contact info to Pervy John to pass to Baggy Eyes Pete?? Do telephones and email even EXIST in Batty’s pointy little bald head??

    And seriously, who the fuck is Mopey Pete that Skunky has to pass along Baldy’s info instead of just saying, “Here’s Pete’s phone number and email. Now please leave. We have to get our pants off before the high school kids get here.”
