Episode 143 - "I'll look the dame over all I pleases!"

PCX reviews Mickey Mouse (comic strip)
- 10/24/1930 (part 2 of 3)

It shows that Mickey is a speciesist. It's okay for a mouse to flirt with his gal but can't abide with a lower than scum cat.

Maybe the cat is interested in rishathra with some little tight thing. I think that's the real reason Gerber wanted a duck only Duckworld, it would bring up the topic of interspecies relationship and maybe he should have made it an all species world. That way it explains Howard's relationship with Beverly.

Why wouldn't you say a girl is cute when you want to fuck her? If I were to want to fuck say Dakota Fanning, hypothetically, I might call her cute, since she is cute. Cute.

Maybe the livestock animals are the retards of that world.

Rated "R" Dennis the Menace

"X" rated Dennis the Menace

Yeah, it does make sense that any character created by Walt Disney might have some "tolerance" issues.

I never read any of the Ringworld stuff, so I had to actually look up Rishathra. And to quote one of Howard's thought balloons directly, "Funny how I've developed a working aesthetic for hairless-ape anatomy..." I just like that at least Gerber would occasionally at least address the whole "interspecies" thing.

You made me look up Iceland's age of consent (because I was initially happy any country would be civilized enough to set it at fourteen), but it turned out to actually be fifteen - what a bunch of uptight prudes!

Disney livestock being the retards of the animal kingdom actually makes perfect sense.

I think the only reason I ever watched Dennis the Menace was always the hope that this would finally be the episode where Dennis would make Mr. Wilson have the fatal heart attack he deserved.

Well, she's 18 and living in New York anyway.

I didn't like Dennis that much, only watched it when nothing else was on. I did find Gina and Mrs. Mitchel hot.

Eighteen? Unless she's one of the apparently numerous Courtney Coombses out there, that's entirely unacceptable.

And as far as sixties TV characters go (they can be adults since they're fictional, anyway), Mrs. Mitchell can't compare to super-MILF Samantha Stephens. Or even Betty Rubble, for that matter.

Hah, I had no idea her last name was Stephens. I went to highschool with a girl named Samantha Stevens.
Nice girl, didn't have the best skin and had a mono-brow and braces. But a good friend.
We sort of drifted apart, as it goes for most school friends.

I meant the cartoon but if we're talking 60's TV MILF, I preferred Agent 99.

I love 60's tv and movies.
I liked Get Smart more than I Dream of Jeannie or Bewitched.
Speaking of Jeannie, how much you want to bet there's a film adaptation on the way? Probably with Josh Duhamel and Fergie or something.
Actually I shouldn't put that on the Internet, they might use that idea.

Spies were at the height of popularity in the 60's. James Bond at his best, The Prisoner, Get Smart. All good stuff.

What do you mean? It's been in post production for years. They even made a couple of TV movies in '85 (I Dream of Jeannie : 15 Years later) and '91 (I Still Dream of Jeannie), I think they stopped making them cause Eden did become too old to be an immortal genie and they couldn't get Hagman to do either. I also think they messed up by having them have a son. They should have had a daughter, that way they could have made another genie out of her.

Now that's how you do it. Actually, maybe not, he seems like he might be caught soon.

I been thinking about why I like 99 better than most including Samantha and Jeannie. Besides her being a brunette, she's actually human. Sam and Jeannie are powerful magical creatures who only play along with the men in their life. Sam could easily turn Darren into a frog anytime she felt like it. And Jeannie, even though she's suppose to be submissive, has proven that she can bypass Nelson's orders and torture and maybe even kill him. Meanwhile, 99 could probably kill Max but she considers him as an equal, frustrating at times, but an equal and doesn't fool him into thinking he's in charge.

TCM, speaking of magical creatures, you recommended Madame Xanadu. Why? I just read the first story arc that ends with the creation of the Spectre and opening of Madame Xanadu's shop and it's okay, but I don't understand why you like it. Is it because the Phantom Stranger keeps fucking with her and plays it off as it's her fault?

As great as a lot of 60s TV was, The Prisoner really does beat all those other shows (even if Mrs. Peel-era Avengers comes close.)

I'm assuming Elizabeth Montgomery was really a brunette since she was one in that Twilight Zone ep. she did and as you would assume, she looked even hotter than she did as Samantha.

Could Jeannie's kid do magic like his mother? I mean, notice that it was Tabitha Stephens who got her own show and not her powerless brother, whatever his name was. Now that I think about it, they even gave the Smarts' kid his own show eventually, but all that was good for was showing us the plastic surgery disaster Agent 99 had become.

I couldn't read your linked-to article past the phrase "tampon tea". Those are two words that just don't belong together.

Well, you pegged one of the things I liked about that first Madame Xanadu arc, in that they could have called the trade Phantom Stranger: Fucking With a Stupid Bitch. Over and Over. I'd have to do a solo review (that "Nooooo!!!" you just heard in the distance was Courtney) or something to really defend it, but just off the top of my head, it's better-written than most other books, the chick artist has a really nice style (bonus points for the fact that she makes Xanadu the one babe in comics with actual human-sized titties); I like that the lead's kinda slutty (and normal slutty, not like say, Dan Slott's undoubtedly STD-infected She-Hulk; Xanadu's more low-key whorishness just makes me think, "Oh yeah, I can get her.") The stories themselves are a nice break from all the super-hero stuff, though I appreciate how Wagner works so many of those characters into the book. And not that I'd say to give it another chance (unless you're downloading your comics for free - in which case, why not?!), but (I think) the second arc has some hot lesbo action-- hmmm. DC just needs to put the Vertigo label on all their books. All the fans have been patiently waiting to see some hot Lois-on-Lana action for years, after all.

Yeah Jeannie's kid did have hints of having magical powers but they never work on it. I think if Hagman didn't want to return they should have worked on the boy's power sort of like a male version of Sabrina. Note-the kid would be near 40, today.

They actually had another pilot where Tabitha's brother was an indulgent warlock, too bad they went with dull and boring for the series. In either Hustler or Penthouse Comix they had a Tabitha character who they never out right said she was the little girl from Bewitched but they referenced the show a few times. The big difference was that her powers were tantric magic based, so she needed plenty of sex for spell casting.

Get Smart '95 TV series was also awful, Andy Dick is not funny.

"Tampon Tea" stopped you? Really? It's iron enriched, so it's healthy.

She-Hulk can't get STD's, her radiated body kills off all foreign germs and such. That's why Jim Wilson wanted Hulk blood, remember? But she can give you cancer, as proven by the tragic death of Betty Ross from vagina cancer.

I got the second Madame Xanadu tpb, so I'll check it out. Somebody has to pay the artists.

I wonder if there's a way to send the artist and writers money directly for comics.

I never knew about "Porno Tabitha", but whatever pervert came up with that is clearly a genius.

Andy Dick was funny on The Ben Stiller Show, was competent in that one Voyager he was on...and...okay, that's about it.

Betty's supposedly come back to life, if Hulkcast is to be believed (oh right, like I'm gonna read the book myself while Jeph "so bad even Heroes fired him" Loeb's still on it); maybe now she's just a carrier infecting other bitches with her pussy cancer via her secret lesbian escapades.

Actually, just sending creators money for their stuff directly is a good idea; the way the Direct Market is dying like it's got, well, pussy cancer or something, that might be the wave of the future.

You should really check out the Penthouse and Hustler Comix, some are really good like most of the Captain Adventure stories. He's the son of the old Captain Adventure and has a sex affair with a superheroine named Hericane. Hericane got her powers from giving the previous Captain a blowjob as the house they were in blew up.

I'm almost sure the Tabitha stories were called Salem. I think in one story she had to exorcist the First Lady (Hillary Clinton) from the ghost of those she murdered. I can't remember if she had to fuck her.

According to Wiki, when she was Mr. Blue she was actually a hallucination created by Nightmare and during the Fall of the Hulks she was just back.

Actually I do sometimes by sending web comics money or buying independent comics directly from the creator.

And now for something completely different and could have been potentially great.

Why doesn't Marvel go ahead and shoot Bruce Jones in the head, then piss on his corpse? I mean, that's in effect what they're doing anyway. "Oh, the stuff he wrote? Yeah, that was pretty much all bullshit. Just forget about it." I mean, shit, if they're gonna do that, can I get a refund for those Jones Hulk issues I paid good money for in those pre-downloading comics off the Internet days?

And what's next, an Anne Frank porno movie?!

I said it before and I'll write it this time: Why does a superhero comic that is "out of continuity" equal "worthless" to some people?

Those Bruce Jones "Hulk" Issues may not "exist" during the current Hulk story. So what? If you enjoyed them, then you got your money's worth. I didn't enjoy the Jones storyline. But by T-Mafia's logic, they were worth the money solely because they were part of the imagined history of the character. Now they are "worthless" because Jeph Loeb or whoever says they don't count?
Gimme a break.

The story may be shit, but the covers alone were worth the price of admission.

This is why I'd be a lousy super-villain, Xantes; no matter what evil idea I'd come up with, someone else out there will have already come up with it. Although why they can't just add a line to their porno indicating Anne Frank is actually eighteen or whatever and just saying she's thirteen (nudge nudge, wink wink), I have no idea.

Tim, it's not only disrespectful to Bruce Jones for Marvel to "erase" his fine work from continuity and replace it with Loeb's incompetent shit, it's disrespectful to the readers. This is an underhanded tactic your hero John Byrne has used countless times; in fact, speaking of the Hulk, I applaud Peter David for writing a scene in Captain Marvel where Rick Jones correctly laughs out loud at Byrne's attempted retcon of a gamma...laser creating the Hulk in the first place.

It's one thing if some history is erased because of storyline, it's another thing to erase history because another writer doesn't like the story. It gets boring.

Like the time Byrne just deleted(!) the Vision's long-established persona because he's apparently that threatened by the idea of androids stealing our human women.

And I liked the Vision and Scarlet Witch being together, I thought it was so progressive of Marvel comics to have human/mechanical marriage. Guess they thought it would look bad if they got a divorce, atleast Mephisto wasn't involved in their marriage collapse. Oh wait, is Mephisto the Marvel universe's happy marriage wrecking demon? By stealing Doom's mom he destroyed that marriage. Did he make Hank slap Janet too? Is Emma Frost just Mephistos in drag? Even though they broke up and Jean is dead, he's sticking around to make sure he keeps them seperated.

Another thing that should be deleted, Doom cutting up Valeria for skin magic powers.

And normally, Waid's not bad - but that was just bullshit! He's actually had the nerve to try to defend his Snidely Whiplash interpretation of the character by claiming the writers who actually are skilled enough to portray him as the complicated man he is are just plain wrong somehow, and it's somehow better for Doom to be a one-dimensional "bwah-ha-ha" cartoon villain who'd not only murder a woman and wear her skin, but threaten to kill a helpless child (A man of honor like Doom gets off on killing kids? Really?!) just to get his way.

You know, with so many retcon-happy writers out there, it wouldn't even surprise me that much if Emma Frost turned out to be Mephisto. In the panel they eventually reveal this, they'll probably have one of those old editor's notes: "We've been so busy getting rid of all the improvements Grant Morrison made to the X-verse, we almost forgot to "fix" how he made Emma Frost so cool! Any questions, kids? Well, fuck you all - 'It's magic! We don't have to explain it!'"

Someone mentioned Doom?!
(Why is there no interrobang on the keyboard?)

As much as I love how American comics have hundreds of different writers working on the same series, giving you a different perspective on the story and also allowing a franchise to run for decades.
I really hate it when a writer clearly does not understand what fundamentally makes a character who they are.

Granted we all have our own interpretation on, well just about everything in the world.
But out of character moments happen all too often because a writer either doesn't care or want to do something "edgy".

Marvel and DC should have a big chart on a wall somewhere that lists the defined traits of every single character.

This quote from Wikipedia just pisses me off:
Writer Mark Waid sought to redefine Doom's character in a way that had not been seen before. In Waid's reinterpretation, Doom hates Richards for knowing at his core he was right when Doom was wrong. Waid was also convinced that the "truism that Victor Von Doom is, despite his villainy, a noble man" (as suggested in Byrne's run) "is absolute crap. A man whose entire motivating force is jealousy is ridiculously petty, not grandly noble. Yes, Doom is regal, and yes, whenever possible, Doom likes to act as if he possesses great moral character, because to him that's what great men have... — but when I hear Doom say it 'does not suit him to' do this-and-such, what I hear is, 'it has nothing to do with my hatred for Reed Richards, so it's not worth my time.'" Waid also stated that Doom "would tear the head off a newborn baby and eat it like an apple while his mother watched if it would somehow prove he were smarter than Reed."

There's doing something new and then there's creating a new character and making them wear Dr.Doom's costume.
The character being Patrick Bateman crossed with Don Quixote apparently.
I mean, I could even understand him pulling this shit with Lex Luthor. Because although he seems logical and highly intelligent, underneath the surface he in horrifyingly insane with obsession.

Mark Waid saw the contradictions in Doom's character as "absolute crap".
But in actual fact, it's realistic, it's complexity.
Doom has defined morals, he is not a psychopath, he is not solely obsessed with Reed (as Lex is to Superman) and he is always right.
The one incident where Doom was wrong seems to always go the same way.
Doom realises he made a mistake, but instead of accepting that he should have listened to Reed, he convinces himself it's somehow Reed's fault.

You know I could go on...

Also Emma Frost is not Mephisto, she's a woman so those satanic qualities are just inherent.

I agree with you on Doom, did he not go to hell to rescue a love one?

Mephisto could be Emma Frost, he's a demon with cross-dressing qualities that are inherent. Didn't you read the link?

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Oh yeah, cannibalize retarded animals, seems like yesterday

Maybe you should have reviewed Air Pirates.

Why can't they just let Howard the Duck go into the public domain? Look at what Marvel did do to him, made him into a skinny kid w/big lips.

And John Hughes could easily leave Hollywood because he's rich.

Starving artists usually had no choice but sign the check.

Mr Wilson would be the pedo in a Dennis the Menace cartoon.
