    That makes perfect sense. But I still prefer the image of the cops shaking the guy down and finding an incriminating bag of chips in his coat…

    What a treat to see this on BoingBoing on a Monday morning! I scanned a number of the stories (both of the Hanks stories are from my collection) for this book, and was also a production assistant for Greg; he did a fantastic job pulling this all together. I hope he decides to do a non-superhero volume sometime, there’s tons more weird and wonderful old comics out there.

    I’m a little confused by the term “dip and drug addict” — by “dip” do they mean snuff, or guacamole?

    a dip is a pick pocket.
