While going through some of Craig Yoe's comic books here at the office I came across a particularly great example of the old pulp coloring. Why they didn't bother to just build the entirety of the suit's black color with cyan I don't know... (That's a Boody Rogers comic page.)
UPDATE: "Jacob, Man, you and Frank Santoro should have a blog where you just say stuff that doesn't make sense to anyone." - Tom Devlin.
We're begining production on a collection of Boody Rogers comics, edited by Arf's Craig Yoe (who I recently learned lives in the castle that was used as the girls school on the TV show The Facts of Life). Opening up the first comic on the stack I saw some scratchy handwriting at the bottom of the first page and thought about how many comics I come across that are defaced by kids' scribbles.
Then I realized this old comic isn't from my collection or yours, it's from Craig Yoe's collection. So of course that's Boody's handwriting...
