Memorial Day Special!

On this day when we honor the memory of dead soldiers, I thought it would be fun to look at some more undead soldiers as we continue our look at DC's Weird War Tales!

No wonder he's crashing; he just dropped acid!

McHale's Navy- as directed by Michael Bay.

The "City of Death" is not a popular tourist destination.

General Flintstone attempts a bold strategy.

If George Lucas had included undead Commanches in space, the Star Wars prequels would've been AWESOME. Though I'm curious as to how a seemingly normal (albeit winged) horse can survive the vacuum of space.

Are we talking the original by Johnny Cash, or the Social Distortion version?

I'm pretty sure that at least one RIFTS book covered this.

Dammit, just when I thought there was no way I would EVER root for the Nazis, they go and add monkeys! Damn you, Hitler!

Happy Memorial Day, everybody!

Happy Star Wars Day!

Today is the day when nerds across the universe celebrate Star Wars, because otherwise they'd have to do something practical with their lives. To celebrate, I thought I'd take a look at some of the covers from Marvel Comics Star Wars series, which is notable for most instances of the phrase "Keep firing, Chewie!" Here we go!

 And yet, I'm betting Luke lives through this.

Moe Howard is Han Solo in Star Wars!

Fun fact about me- when I was a kid, "shooting rabbits" was my phrase for pooping. And yes, sometimes they were in fact green.

Doomworld- inhabited by the cast of Sidehackers!

If there's one thing I've learned from WCW's Halloween Havoc, it's that grim wheels of fate quickly descend into absurdity. There's probably an evil midget with an eye patch in this story.

In the futuristic setting of Star Wars, they have robots, faster-than-light travel, and lasers, but no radios, apparently.

Yes, apparently not even Mel Brooks is above plagiarism....

May the Fourth be with you, everybody!
