Best plot in a video game EVER?

So much examples of utter brilliance here! The fact that the competition portrayed in the video game was in vogue among “Mafia, reckless drivers (!) and general businessmen”! That the game was a struggle for “No. 1 Quarreler”! That fighters … Continue reading

Bad Comic Panels #10: “Just like a woman! […] you’re too scatterbrained and emotional!”

Ah, Reed Richards. Few characters have been as consistently portrayed as sexist, in mainstream superhero comics. It’s probably because he and Sue were one of the first “real” couples in superhero comics: they were already dating in the very first … Continue reading

Bad Comic Panels #9: “Our Communist overlords will slay us if we fail in our mission!”

Since the Anti-Communism entries in the Bad Comic Panel series have, so far, been about the Soviet Union, I thought that such a “monopoly” would be unfair to our Chinese friends in the 1960s, who have been ignored so far. … Continue reading

Bad Comic Panels #8: “Da! That is why you will never be dictator!”

Bad Comic Panels #7: “I’m the Goddamn Batman!”

Another infamous one, by Frank Miller, and much parodied on the Internet. Much like the Tarot example, I’m posting it just so that, when this blog has thousands of readers a day(1), I’m not inundated with emails and comments asking … Continue reading

Bad Comic Panels #6: General Fang two-in-one

I could have stretched this one into two separate posts, but since they would both concern the very same character (again, much like Karl Kort, never seen again after this story, sadly), and are from the same story, I chose … Continue reading

Bad Comic Panels #5: “You have to get out of here! Your vagina is haunted!”

No, I won’t go into detail about this panel, or the… story… behind that infamous phrase. For that, I refer you to an article titled, quite informatively, The Stark, Existential Horror of Tarot #53. Mostly safe for work, but you’ll … Continue reading

Bad Comic Panels #4: “a pretty young lady can always be of help — just by keeping the men’s morale up!”

Yes, if your sense of humor is anything near mine, you may be grinning already, after reading the dialog above. But, for the full effect, this entry in the Bad Comic Panels series requires a little more background. So, Fantastic … Continue reading
