Proof That I Have Too Many Comics.

While sorting through my comics, I found Amazing Spider-Man #124 (1973)...

...Marvel Tales #101 (1978)...

...and Power Records #10 (1974).

It's the same freakin' story!

A Blooper, Indeed.

I recently ran across this book, printed in 1969, The Dictionary of Bloopers & Boners.

Before you get the wrong idea around what the book is about, let me show you a couple of excerpts from the book's forward.

It goes on to examine how such things can occur.

In the body of the book, some of the entries have an accompanying cartoon.

It's a fun read highlighting misused words or ideas from various sources. The dedication page has a single statement on it...

A nice sentiment. It could only be better if it had a cartoon to go with it.

It isn't easy being green.

She-Hulk has green blood. It drove me a little crazy when Greg Horn painted many She-Hulk covers, during Dan Slott's great run, that gave her red-rimmed eyes. To me, she merely looked like a red-blooded girl painted green.

That may be why the green-skinned woman in the newest Star Trek movie looks merely painted to me too.

I'm just saying.
