Tom The Dancing Bug's Super-Fun-Pak Comix Edited by Ruben Bolling CLASSIX COMIX Not a substitute for reading the text or for classroom discussion of the text. FRANKENSTEIN ARRRR Doctor: I've done it! I've created life! Rise, Frankenstein! Monster: Actually, I'm not Frankenstein. I'm Frankenstein's MONSTER. Doctor: Oh. Monster: Frankenstein is the name of the BOOK. Doctor: Oh, right. SPACE FORCE ON MARS THE ZACK/ CODY REPORT Zack: There are Zack days and there are Cody days. Today I am having such a Cody day! Cody: Me too. Zack: But there's a Zack front moving in... Cody: Looks like tomorrow and Friday will be Zack days. PERCIVAL DUNWOODY, IDIOT TIME TRAVELER FROM 1909 Woman: Time travel must be impossible! Because, where are the time-travelers? Woman: We'd see time-travelers everywhere, to observe or change this critical time in history! 2031 APOCALYPSE BROTHEL Woman: You again? AH, LIFE Doctor: To treat your depression, you must find a way to laugh! Doctor: The great clown Pannichi is in town. Go and see him. Patient: But, Doctor! You don't understand! Patient: Clowns aren't funny! Welcome to the World of Sea-Monkeys They swim and play in their underwater kingdom! They will obey your commands! YOU ARE THEIR RULER! Yes, I'd like to buy these delightful pets! Enclosed is my check or money order! Wait, there's no mention of any price in this ad, nor is there an order form! Isn't this an ad to buy tiny crustaceans as novelty aquarium pets? What in the world is this? What does the line "You are their ruler!" mean? Doesn't that imply this has already happened? That I have no choice? Good Lord, have I DIED and become the monarch of a magical race of sea monkey spirits in an afterlife world? What a sad yet poignantly fitting end to my life. I've always loved the sea, and felt a special bond with monkeys. And although my life was full of degradation and hardship, I always thought there was some greater, even regal, purpose for me. And so I say farewell to this mortal realm; my aquatic dominion awaits me.
