*The bulk of this week has actually been taking place last week, but you knew that, right? So today is finally Monday again, but tomorrow is Friday. Wouldn’t it be nice if every week just went directly from Monday to Friday?

*I promise… this is headed towards some inspired and unexpected places that at least one or two people might actually find funny! 🙂

*That switch has always been there, right? I mean, it wouldn’t just suddenly appear as a convenient and necessary plot device without any previous existence or explanation, right? Surely it has always been there and we just never really noticed. Yes, that must be it. 🙂

*Have you ever started a story and then didn’t really have an ending so you just keep it going and hope something happens? I’m asking for a friend… 🙂

Nostalgia – Vantage Comics and Card Picks Fanzine

Way back in the ancient 1990s… there was a comics fanzine called Vantage Comics and Card Picks. As you might surmise from the title, they talked about comics and trading cards! 🙂 There were others too, like Wizard and Hero… but specific to this blog post, there was Vantage. My memory is foggy at this point, but at some point way back in the day they had a job opening. I can’t remember if they were looking for someone to do page layouts or creative writing, or perhaps both… but I worked up a couple of full-page samples of funny to submit to them. I don’t remember ever hearing anything back from them, and that fanzine is long gone… but I recently found my old samples again and scanned them in so that I could share them on the blog.

Some of the jokes still hold up, even if you might not get exactly the reason why I made them… probably the most obscure one is the Crypt/Moon Knight non-crossover joke, which basically pokes at the notion around that time that some characters at some companies were virtually indistinguishable from characters at other companies 😉 I also like the fact that the picture of Captain America is literally there for no real reason… I mean, nothing on either page makes any reference at all to him!

This is 20+ year old stuff from me, but I think my sense of humor is pretty much still in the same general place, so let me know what you think. Also, I kind of miss fanzines like we had back in the 1990s. We don’t really have that today. Sure, there are some Web sites, but it’s just not the same as a monthly magazine that you can hold in your hand.

*So… who knew this was headed here? Okay, but do you know what’s going to happen next? Buzz does like to stay in character, doesn’t he! 🙂

*True story… I literally did not know the Hall of Fame game was on tonight until I stumbled upon it a couple of minutes after 8:00 pm Eastern time. I knew we were close to the pre-season, but the Hall of Fame game is always on Sunday and that kicks off my looking for the pre-season games on TV. Also, the guys are finally learning that the couch is not a safe zone! 🙂

*Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman… or the Doctor…  and if you can be both?  Be both! 🙂

*Is rabies funny? The word seems funny. I don’t think having actual rabies would be funny. I do enjoy foam, though…

*For those not in the know… the Joker has sometimes been called the Clown Prince of Crime. I thought that made for a funny bit of name wordplay here, but I might be insane.
