A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
Well no shit the giant’s eyed you, Robin. You’re climbing up the bridge of his nose. With grappling ropes.
I don’t know what circumstances led you guys to this being the most effective way to solve whatever mystery you’re trying to solve, but I’m pretty sure that the best way to avoid being detected by a giant would be to not scale his face like it was Mount Rushmore.
On the one hand, that’s our Lois! Intrepid reporter who works until the job is done!
On the other hand, wouldn’t she have a salaried position as a top reporter at the Planet? Making any overtime she works entirely irrelevant?
Unless maybe she was working her second job at McDonald’s or something. Then I guess this would make more sense.
Otherwise Jonna might’ve been a little screwed, going around without her bubble helmet.
I…guess that’s an accurate definition for “explore.” I can’t think of anything else for a simple definition, but it still feels a bit flat.
On a different note, Jonna certainly doesn’t look like she’s exploring. It looks like she’s just standing 50 yards from her space ship posing for a camera. And I don’t think that really makes her much of an explorer.
How vague. Now we’re left to choose between a variety of circumstances:
In any case, this whole definition would be a lot less silly if it said “Barbara Gordon” instead of “Batgirl,” but then it wouldn’t be The Super Dictionary, now would it?
And so ends the first page of the re-return of The Super Dictionary! Come back tomorrow (really tomorrow) for the final page of the letter E! What lies in store? Pure hilarity, I can assure you.
Check out under the cut for today’s full page!
I think you’re going to need to go a little farther than that car.
But did you really need to lift up a moving vehicle as part of this test? That seems pretty rude.
And come on! You have this plethora of science characters and you pick Supergirl to illustrate “experiment”? You couldn’t just use the Atom doing something that isn’t being terrorized by little girls?
(Supergirl Costume Tally: 10! This might actually be the first time we’ve seen the blue top/red skirt and boots combo!)
Well, Robin, I hate to break it to you, but that is inevitably what Batman will expect from you.
Because he always expects too much from you.
On the bright side, every Robin to serve after you will be held up to some idyllic standard based on what Bruce thinks he remembers about you?
But that’s not really going to help you now.
I didn’t realize nets were so bouncy. I guess that shows what I know about exercise!
Also that’s a pretty impressive take-off from landing headfirst into that dive. And extra impressive that Hawkman somehow took off before Hawkgirl.
Oops! Life got the better of me again, and I really slacked off on…everything.
FIXING THIS NOW.
Tune in later today for the return of The Super Dictionary, starting with the penultimate page of the letter E!
What did you need to exclaim about, Teri?
Those guys are so far away you can’t possibly hear them from behind your…rock…?
Unless something really dramatic is happening off-panel by your feet. Like being bitten by a poisonous spider. Or pinched by a crab. Or being stung by a scorpion! Those would all be excellent reasons to exclaim.
Thus ends another stunning page of The Super Dictionary. Tune in next time for the penultimate page of the letter “E”! We all knew they were winding down when they got to the “ex” words — but who knew how close we really were?!
