Blockade Boy: the Michael Moore of Comic Book Bloggers

And now, two unfairly out-of-context panels from "Daredevil" #154 (September, 1978):

FIRE MAN-BOOB MISSILES!

Best. Sound effect. EVER.

Stop reading now, if you don't want the context explained.

Seriously, stop.

Okay, you've been warned!

In the first panel, the Paladin's chest-armor is absorbing the impact of missiles fired at him by the Cobra.

In the second, the Purple Man's last word of dialog gets lettered as a BIG SCREAM! So big, it's popped the word balloon!

...I like my versions better.

I thought the boob ( moob ) missiles were the ones you posted yesterday...

At first glance I thought Purple Man was screaming "FAIL!"

An equally redundant sentiment, I guess.

Ever see Tranzor Z? It was a cartoon from Japan with giant robots (yeah, I know unique concept). I don't remember anyone's names at all, but there was a boy pilot for Tranzor Z and his girlfriend had a giant girl robot that shot missiles out of her breasts. It was definitely something.

I love Wikipedia.

Look here!

Yes, your version is much funnier.

Tranzor Z was the US name for Mazinger Z, a real classic.

Man, how often did the Purple Man get killed? He's never going to become Axe Body Spray's Most Perfect spokesperson if he keeps dieing. They'll have to go with even more creepy dudes like the Mandrill or Star Fox...

Gustavo: Heh. Both sets look pretty deadly, don't they?

Spazmo: Aw, HELL yeah! If this issue had been written by Steve Engelhart instead of Roger McKenzie, that probably would have been the sound effect.

Jon: Holy Moses! It's like a militant mastectomy!

Nepharia: Thanks!

MaGnUs: Interesting!

Lurker: Not to mention, he dies by launching himself at Daredevil, who just scoots out of the way. How very Disney villain of him.

BB: You didn't have to add that "Interesting" there to feign interest. :>
