I wrote a short piece on Hitler being used in comics on my blog, for anyone who is interested - http://andrew-madaboutcomics.blogspot.com/

Interesting-thanks for that, Andrew. Thomson's also parodied Mussolini, of course, in the strip Musso the Wop (He's a big-a-da flop). Somehow, I doubt you'd see that title these days...

I have a copy (two, in fact; the original hardback, and softback copy I found at a boot fair) of The International Book of Comics, which has been one of my favourite books since I received it as a birthday present in the early eighties. I met Denis Gifford a few times in the years before his death. A fascinating man, whose knowledge of comics was unrivalled, it seemed to me.

Correct GBF! In `Guinness` records under `Mass Murder` Stalin is top! Mostly his own people as well! Some people might say Hitler was insane (though its no excuse in my book!) but Stalin was a cold heartless creature who even condemned members of his own family! He fully deserved the truly painful end to his life! (he suffered a `anyorism` in his brain and died in agonising pain over several hours-is there a God?) Oooh! Shocked Heavy semantics on the site! Surprised

I think that Stalin died of old age around 1953, Alan.......whether he killed more people than Herr Hitler is debatable..........





for all his glowering and no-nonsense appearance, Hitler was meant to have actually had a sense of humour----at least in company-----and collected anti-Nazi cartoons, according to some reports. During WW2, English cartoonist DAVID LOW was revered in the political-satire stakes, and apparantly Adolf made enquiries to FLEET STREET as regarding buying some LOW originals; I assume he didn't use his REAL name for the requests, but another third-party!

Sorry rab! A cerebral Heommarrage (Bet I spelled that wrong!) it was! Been well documented with many witnesses! The stupid idiots (his `aides`)were too scared to call a Doctor for hours and it was too late once one did reach him! A programme was made about this!

It has now been setimated since the fall of Communism in the old Soviet Empire that Stalin personally ordered the deaths of well over 30 million! Mostly his own peoples! Hitler may well have indirectly caused more deaths E.G you could say that every Allied Soldiers death was down to Hitler!

Both H & S just `not nice people` really!

I've not read it, but Spain Rodriguez did a biography of Stalin in Arcade #4. And John Ostander's villain Stalnoivolk in Firestorm #69-73 looked like Comrade Stalin on steroids.

Ah, good old Steel Wolf. Whatever happened to him and his diminutive, bespectacled superior, I wonder? Very Happy

I've had a few ketchup sandwiches in my time -- I even have the occasional one as an adult -- but never thought of 'doing a Marlon'! At least you tried!

You'd need to put a barrier around the bread to dam the ketchup, then let it congeal (yeuck!). Or freeze it, like Marlon once tried to prevent splash-outs, and end up with a ketchup lolly sandwich!
Hmm, there's clearly more involved in this process than seems at first apparent. Perhaps some sort of vacuum formed, ketchup resistant sandwich holder is needed?
I'm not big on ketchup/catsup, but back in college I once put sugar on a dining hall hamburger to see if it would taste any better or any worse.

The sad thing was, it didn't really make any difference.  Shocked

Ye gods  affraid 

My friend once had a Mars Bar and cheese toastie, but I was never brave enough. I have, however, had a marshmallow toastie. And a burger from Buster's van, which probably qualifies me for some sort of bravery award.

Lex Luthor. Bronze Age, actually. Because he was the perfect foil for Superman, in that while he was a genius of the highest order, he was human. With all the faults we have. Plus, not being a killer, he was fun.

I liked Bronze Age Luthor. When I think of Luthor, I think of him in that green and purple outfit with the collar and the totally pointless chest straps. Classic.

I prefer him in a suit and tie. Nobody wears a tie any more.

Does Judge Dredd have a foe who would be the equivalent of Batman's The Joker?

Dredd vs. a murderous whack job clown (who always manages to escape by cheating death) might be fun.

Dredd's arch enemy is still Judge Death. Probably his other longest running adversary these days though is PJ Maybe, who would be a better fit as a Joker analogue. He's not a clown, but he is a totally loopy but highly intelligent and cunning serial killer who murders people for the fun of it. He was actually based on Sue Townsend's self obsessed teenage diarist Adrian Mole.
