So Ted had to have his brains splattered before us to make way for Booberry Spawn?

Though with some tweaking, this wouldn't be a terrible henshin hero costume and you could use the scarab magic as a way to do that with a character called Blue Beetle. Just a random thought. But even if I were able to do that, I wouldn't have gored out Ted to make room for it.

I was looking back at the early issues of BB with Paris Cullins and some of the Steve Ditko stuff. The first thought I had was that if you could combine some the humor of Giffen with that great action stuff you'd have a really good Blue Beetle book. You just pullng back a little from FKATJ wihtout losing his smile and give him that dynamic hero vibe again.

What really sells this image are the "aroma" lines wafting up off the figure.

Apparently he's a "Dung Beetle."

At the mention of the Charles Atlas ads, I think I know what's really going wrong with the comics industry. Everything wrong with the comics industry can be summed up in one word:

Twinkies.

When's the last time you saw an ad for Hostess twinkies? Comics are too violent, too expensive, and too stupid because they are no longer being marketed to people who eat twinkies. Twinkie-eaters are young at heart, optimistic, noble and good. The only twinkie-worthy comic I've read recently was Banana Sunday.

Who can save Superman? Not Kurt Busiek! Hostess fruit pies, that's who!

If you really think comic readers don't eat plenty of Twinkies, you haven't been to the same conventions I have.

Besides, what about the "Twinkie Defense" used by that mass murderer?

I think they eat more than just that and what the heck is that smell in comic book shops? It's not good... not good at all.
