I’m dying here! Seriously, this might just be my favourite “Comic Critics!” ever!
Nicely done! File “Tyroc” under “stuff you can’t make up.”
I love Tyroc, and even I admit his origins were pretty screwed up.
Two panels in, I new it was going to be great:)
Ha this is funny. But as an 11 year old or so, the racial undertones didn’t even occur to me. maybe as a white kid in Utah, having not experienced the racism both ways that occured(s) in large cities and in the south, i was blissfully ifnorant. I thought Tyroc was cool, I liked his costume, and I thought it was cool to be from a community separated from the world. knowing the back story now after hearing it from the creaters, I’m sad that it was brought about that way. But as an 11 year old in 1976 ish when he debuted. It was cool. great cover too!
That’s just a little too scary. How the hell did we, as a species, make it to the 21st Century?
Bow ties are cool!
I sort of imagine a LOT of those sorts of conversations taking place today at DC offices.
“We’ll label Africa as controlled by apes in Flashpoint! That ought to clear everything up.”
And who are they supposed to be?? that Murray Boltinoff guy?? Infantino??
Damn you guys are on fire at the moment. This is so, so good. Thanks.
are really fanboys like that??
