Regrettable Superheroes


I have not seen a copy yet, but I am betting this book will be a winner, based on the description.

For every superhero hitting the big time with a blockbuster movie, there are countless failures, also-rans, and D-listers. The League of Regrettable Superheroes affectionately presents one hundred of the strangest superheroes ever to see print—from Atoman to Zippo—complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary.

Drawing on the entire history of the medium, the book celebrates characters that haven’t seen the light of day in decades, like Natureboy, Dr. Hormone, Thunder Bunny, and more. It’s a must-read for comics fans of all ages!

Until it appears in June, why not read an issue of DOLLMAN now.

Cartoon Insect with Dog’s Head


1) Multiple limbs.

2) Insect antennae.

3) Called a "jitterBUG."

4) Dog's head.

One of these things does not belong.

Villainous Asperations

This grown man and father is having his face transformed into a comic book villain called Red Skull. Up to and including having the tip of his nose cut off to complete the effect. I have just one question, why?
