    How do saucers pop??

    Wow. I can’t figure out if that was so bad it’s good, or just straightforwardly awesome.

    Wasn’t that used in the Twilight Zone episode where the little girl got lost on the other side of the dimensional portal in the wall?

    Should be set to a-ha’s “Take On Me.”

    ah the dated, but still stylish, “little hat store on high street” euphemism

    Jack Kirby may be awesome, but he’s never played any records, has he?

    Uh, I was wondering why Max and Eddie were living together myself — and why the Martian wasn’t a man. Ah well, at least DOMA was thrown out today!

    Page 3: “Man, this is going to be awesome! I’ve got so many neat ideas for cool ways to draw Eddie!”

    Page 4: “Screw it, I’m bored now.”

    And I agree, the Max-Eddie subtext takes this whole thing to Very Strange Places indeed.

    Nice find, Mark.  I love the way “the fourth dimension” and “mars” are just meaningless labels for what the artist & writer wanted to do, they don’t bother trying to be coy about it (contrast with dilithium crystals or midochlorians).

    “First–marry me!  Second–return my new hat!”

  12. Nash Rambler says:

    It ends in marriage to a Martian?  Truly spine-tingling.

    “Hey, Ditko, what do these pills in your medicine cabinet do? There’s no label on the bottle.”

    “I dunno, Kirby, I just take one every morning with my coffee. Try one if you want.”

    “…whoa! Is this crazy shit what you see every day, Steve?”

    “…you mean that most people don’t?”

    This basically summarizes my ultimate fantasy in comic form. Radical.

    Some men will go to any lengths for a beard.

    he sure cares a lot about his new hat considering he lives in a hat shop!
