Chapeau by Jiffy Pop


The last time I saw a hat like that, it adorned a "hillbilly" teddy bear at the Cracker Barrel.

Even though I'm a Legion fan, I don't seem to recall this Cockrum-Grell era costumer.

And who is this Bill character? Could it be be B'illl?

I smell a Johns retcon...

Actually, I remember seeing it on one of the Hair Bear Bunch.

What's with that guy? He looks kind of loopy from getting punched in the mush a couple times.

Though Wizard Magazine considered it a bold move on DC's part, most fans were upset at the scene in Final Crisis where Jean Loring used Ted Kord's skull as a hat.

That's Night Girl, of course! The Jiffy Pop bit is just there to accomodate her magnificent beehive. Although why Cosmic Boy looks so skeevy is beyond me.

Also: what the hell are they talking about? What does "a hungry look" have to do with surfing alone? Did he eat his girlfriend? Is the surfboard hiding his distended paunch?

Well, I would imagine it has to do with that "30 minutes" rule. You don't want Bill to cramp up while he's hanging 10, do you?

Jeez, I think that thing is practically her frickin' sidekick, the Orko to her He-Man, as it were.

That, or Toni McCutout there is about to get sorted into Hufflepuff.

Yeah, but really, how old is the comic this frame came from? 1972...1974? And the kids keep wanting to dress like that. It only proves they *are* all on drugs.

If you look at the guy behind her, even HE can't keep a straight face when looking at that loopy hat!

Comixbear said...

Um...not that I know anything about straight faces, of course! ;)

Gustavo: "I smell a Johns retcon..."
Nope, that's just the stench from a beached squid. The odors are remarkably similar.

Scipio: Thank you! I was trying to remember that reference, and the only thing I could come up with was "Hillbilly Bears." They weren't nearly as cool as the Hair Bear Bunch.

Jon: Bwah! I'm giving you bonus points for your use of the term "mush". You're hard-boiled!

David: That's our Geoff Johns...! *cue wacky musical stinger*

Bill: Maybe he's "manorexic." Sure, he has barely enough energy to carry that board, but on the plus side, his cheekbones are exquisite.

David: "Hanging 10"? Is that what the young people are calling it nowadays (back then)?

Chawunky: "Orko"...! Holy crap. This must be a He-Man comic, written by Chuck Austen!

Chawunky: For a minute, I thought that was a Sid and Marty Kroft reference. My nerd-dom is hopelessly outdated!

Nepharia: It's from 1970, to be precise. The mens' fashions aren't much better, but there are scads of sexy muttonchops to help draw the eye away from them.

Comixbear: His face looks pretty dang melted, doesn't it? He's like a lounge-lizard version of Jonah Hex.

Comixbear: *rim shot*
