Good Tidings We Bring To You & Your King...

Clearly Santa has been hitting the fireside sherry and the Question didn't get that hobby-horse he asked for:

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

(Today's oddly timed yuletide yuks were brought to you by the critically acclaimed The Question #26 by the legendary Denny O'Neil and the frankly pretty damn good Denys Cowan.& Malcolm Jones III. Also in this issue the Riddler and his new, psychotic, ex-stripper, uzi-toting girlfriend take a bus trip. Festive fun for the whole family!) 

Damn Dirty Mutated Ape...

Possibly the best bit of dialogue Rascally Roy Thomas ever wrote (try saying that ten time fast):

Hope all the mad scientists in mutated ape clothing out there were paying attention.

If you were hoping to score some Kryptonian, Amazonian or old codgerian worship in your villainous futures...you can forget it.

(Today's monkey business was brought to you by the utterly fantastic Infinity Inc #10 by comic book titans Rascally Roy and Jerry Ordway. Also in this self-same issue Earth 2 Supes attempts to defeat the combined powers of Infinity Inc. with a really big stick. Those kind of  ingenious super-tactics are what's missing from the new 52).
