Welcome to my BLOG. I post my weekly comic strips here and other articles about comics and cartooning, mostly. There's some miscellaneous pictures in the earlier posts. My "business card" website is RELIABLECOMICS.COM. I also operate GLUYASWILLIAMS.COM. Look around.

The Comics Explained: Adventure Comics #368
Adventure Comics #368, Mutiny of the Super-Heroines
So the ambassador from a matriarchal planet crash lands on Earth. She uses malevolent "voodoo dolls" to boost the powers of the girl Legionnaires and then manipulate them to do her bidding! The events of this comic occur 960 years in the future.
The ambassador from the matriarchal planet is a dykey, short-haired (like a guy?? *shudder*) ice queen and it only makes sense that she plays with dolls--only they're evil dolls that can control people! She's sneaky and mean like any woman who gets to be the boss. Earth society was historically patriarchal but they now believe in the equality of the sexes, and oh, all the kids are real nice! The president of Earth is a great guy!
Ambassador Thora uses her dolls to increase the girls' powers and slowly subjugate their wills. The girl Legionnaires start to really get stuff done with their amplified powers and the boys are all like "Yesterday all you could do is brush your hair and decorate! But now we feel threatened!!" The girls soon take over the Legion, throw out the boys. The boys are surprised and want the girls to come to their senses because tomorrow is cookie day, and dudes can't make cookies!
But don't worry, fellows, because by the end everything is back to normal. The evil lady boss from outer space is defeated by the man-fearing, knows-her-place Supergirl, and after defeat, Ambassador Thora promptly commits suicide (head in the oven).
Current value in this condition: $1.00

Danny Dutch Weekly Strip #36
I didn't do anything for a month! Anyhow, I'm a step away from just killing this blog since I never post much of anything anymore...You should bookmark the Danny Dutch Strip RSS Feed or my Flickr photostream since that seems to be where all the big action is. Also keep an eye on reliablecomics.com since I just renewed the domain for another year. And don't forget to buy Danny Dutch's Illiterate Yellow Funny Book from my inestimable pooblisher Sparkplug Comic Books and Stories. That's it, I guess.
