PostSubject: "STUPID COMICS" - my new favorite web page...   Fri Mar 13, 2009 8:10 pm

I posted this at another forum earlier today and it got a pretty good response, so I figure you all might get some chuckles out of it too.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Geeks of all ages... I give you the wondrous "STUPID COMICS" web page!

http://misterkitty.org/extras/stupidcovers/index.html

I don't know how many other comic book aficionados are around here but even if you were never a comic book geek like me, you might still get a laugh or two from this site. These guys have compiled a massive selection of some of the absolute WORST comic books ever to pollute the newsstand, with tons of entries in categories such as "I Love the '80s" (bad self published black & white comics), "Lois Lane Has Too Much Time on Her Hands" (self explanatory), "I Can't Believe it's Not Archie" (bad vintage "teenager" comics that tried to jump on the Archie bandwagon), "Star Drek" (bad science fiction comics), and many others. The page and panel scans, plus the absolutely brutal commentaries that accompany each example, had me practically spitting my drink all over my monitor numerous times. Stuff like this makes me wish I hadn't sold off most of my comic collection because I had some absolute beauts that would've fit right onto this site.

I am thankful for this site because now such under-appreciated pulp paper abominations as these can be preserved for everyone to enjoy:



Now here's a partnership that rivaled Batman and Robin huh? Sadly, I think Quik Bunny was killed off during the first "Crisis on Infinite Earths" mini-series because he no longer fit into Earth-One Superman's continuity. (That's a Geek joke, folks. If you understand what I'm talking about, then you're obviously a geek like me.)



Does it scare you as much as it does me to think that trees died in order to make TWO issues of a Kool-Aid Man comic book? Although shamefully enough, I must admit that I actually owned Kool Aid Man issue #1. I think you got it for free in the mail if you sent in three Kool-Aid labels or some damn thing.



This series was based on a toy motorcycle stunt set, if memory serves. Gotta love those pre-P.C. angry Japanese (who look more Latino than Japanese; or is it just me?) waving "YANKEE GO HOME" signs...


Yes, that's comedian Don Rickles appearing in a Superman comic. God help me, I think I actually owned this one.


I KNOW I owned this one. Good Lord. Obviously I bought anything that said "first issue" on the cover back in those days.


Didn't own this one... but it looks like the kinda crap I would've thrown money at...


Did the "Hard Rockin Rabbits" ever release an album? If not, they should have.

Check out their gallery for even MORE fun stuff!!

I read that page when you posted it on Facebook. Hilarious stuff. Smile The comics industry used to try anything to get kids to read their books.

Yea, there's some serious crap on there isn't there?? Haha. They've got enough entries to keep me busy for a while. The commentaries they post under the various pictures and page scans kill me.

I'm pretty sure I had that Kool-Aid comic. The little yellow guys were the "thirstie monsters" or something. It was their lot in life to make sure everyone had drymouth. Kool-Aid Man to the rescue!

I got that "Crisis" joke too, Freddy. You're not alone.

That KISS book looks pretty bad, Schmoop (and I mean that in a good way)... but nothing will EVER top the two KISS Marvel Super Special issues from '77-78 for flat-out cheezy godawful four color goodness...the Marvel version had MUCH better artwork, though it looks to me like the colorist here forgot that Paul's hair is supposed to be black, not brown... !!

Sometimes you don't have to say anything. The jokes write themselves.

Another sample from the previously-mentioned "Hard Rockin' Rabbits" ... never read the comic but judging from the few panels shown on this site, if I did, my reaction would probably be along the same lines as the guy on the far right.

Laughing very hard In "The Story of the Year" no less!!

Seriously, the early 60s were not good to the heroes in the DC stable. The Superman comics of that era are similarly ridiculous.

That's not even a baby.

But I guess Bat-Toddler doesn't alliterate as well.

There were some old Super-Baby stories from that era too, it ran as a backup feature in Superboy. As if stories about Superman as a teenager wasn't enough, they had to go all the way back to "When Superman was a Tot!" Laughing very hard

"SuperBaby" wasn't really a baby in those stories, he was toddler-sized too.
