Welcome to the weblog of the writers and artists of Ferret Press (a publisher of fine comix) and PANEL (a Columbus, Ohio comic creators collaborative.) Here you will find our musings on comics, art, the creative process, politics, the web, and life.
The really annoying thing about the 1970s Justice Society was how they kept trying to "push" the Star-Spangled Kid.
He's kind of a sucky character. He's impulsive, green and not tremendously competent. He's the only one who's not outwardly sexist toward Power Girl, but he seems to think that should get him through her cleavage window.
And the bragging! He's always bragging about all the things he could do with the cosmic rod that he got from Starman.
(I mentioned Wildcat's kind of a dick in this, right?)
Anyway, here's the Kid using the cosmic rod to maintain Kent Nelson's grip on life, however that would work:
In this scene, it's making a pillow. The thing is seriously depicted as more powerful and versatile than Green Lantern's power ring.
This looks like a personal problem.
I think this would wake me up, too. Where's he putting that rod?
Then this -- I don't know what to say about this. Chomp?
