Oh, Snapp

s183itsrising

Thanks for the newsflash, kooky! This is a classic case of Exposition Gone Wild, in which someone describes aloud something that both is clearly depicted visually in the same panel and was predicted to happen in the previous panel. Still, it's not as unnecessarily wordy as, say, a story by Chris Claremont or Brian Michael Bendis or Kevin Smith... aaagh. I think gave myself indigestion just thinking about those guys.

And I wouldn't fret over Clark if I were you. Putting aside the fact he's Superboy, Clark is used to things going wrong during impromptu basket inspections. (Just ask Pete Ross!)

I knew it, I knew it. Did I call that wacky silver age hijinkery or what?

Who, exactly, is that "YEEOWWW" coming from? Is that just the sound an escaping hot air balloon makes?

Jon: What do you want, a medal? Seriously, because Rainbow Girl dabbles in jewelry design.

Bill S.: It's the sound of a plot hole yawning open.

The clown is obviously Exposition Girl in disguise.

Oh, that Exposition Girl! What would comics readers do without her?
