Everyone knows that first is gold, second is silver, and third is bronze, but how many knew that fourth was Coca-Cola? It’s why athletes refuse the prize because all that corn syrup is bad for a body in training.
We continue our annual look back at the triumphs and failures of Bun Toon with an entry celebrating the 75th anniversary of ACTION COMICS #1 and comicdom’s greatest, non-flying, Golden Age, female, DC character who isn’t Ma Hunkle. Screw Clark and Superman, they get all the media attention…this is…
I still have a crush on Margot Kidder, Teri Hatcher, Phyllis Coates, and Erica Durance. Noel Neill looked too much like Lucille Ball for my tastes, and as far as I know, there haven’t been any other Lois Lanes except in the cartoons and funny books.
As I just said, it doesn’t matter the name of the actor playing the character of Lois Lane, I love ’em all.
Actors, and stage names, was the subject of the following ALL-TRUE-TALE of the Bunny, but it scored nary a blip on the internet radar when I revealed this hidden moment from my life last fall. If I had thrown Lois or Superman into the narrative, it would have been BIG, I tells ya BIG!
But then it wouldn’t have been TRUE.
I think this one didn’t do any traffic because I skimped on the title lettering. Lesson learned: Always use a Comicraft font for the titles. People flock to good lettering.
I’ll see you here again tomorrow for the #3 most popular Bun Toon of 2013, and the third least successful entry, BOTH of which feature Superman, except for one of them. (Well neither, really, but I understand marketing and you won’t come back if I say they were cartoons about lesbians.)
