A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
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!)
Come on. That is totally what she is saying. Look at her. JUST LOOK AT HER.
Nope, I don’t think Supergirl has ever been afraid of anything. Especially not that rat, and definitely not whoever has apparently captured her in this barren warehouse.
I’m voting King Creepy McCreeperson.
Plus the mystery of my icon is solved! This might be my favorite ridiculous illustration in this book. (That might be a lie, but it is definitely in the top ten.)
With that stunningly questionable pose, we conclude today’s page of The Super Dictionary! Come back tomorrow (and yes — actually tomorrow!) for another dose of whack-tacular fun.
Check out under the cut for today’s full page!
Man, no wonder Comet bit Supergirl. Forcing your not-really-a-horse super horse through its paces in a dressage show. Tying ribbons in his hair. Not letting him leave. That’s not very nice, Supergirl.
What is with the Super Family and their issues with sentient life, anyway? I mean, there’s Superbaby and that…gorilla thing. There’s Lois with that box on her head (But that might be all Lois. We can’t be sure.). And just constantly Supergirl and her constant abuse of Comet.
Just because you’re Kryptonian doesn’t make you better than everyone else, guys. JEEZ.
Superman or Supergirl?
The choice is obvious.
This is Jimmy Olsen we’re talking about here. Give us a little credit, Super Dictionary.
Calling that guy “heavy” is just uncalled for. And probably inaccurate. Plus Supergirl’s judgement of what is and isn’t heavy is totally different from ours.
And this is why it’s not brave when you fly around saving people, Kara. Because there’s no difference between flying around aimlessly and carrying fashion-impaired men over your shoulder.
But more seriously:
What is that guy wearing? Checks and stripes? All flesh tone? Such a no-no.
(Supergirl Costume Tally: An unheard of 9! Those thigh high boots have never shown up before!)
She just knocked out Supergirl.
I’m really surprised that Hippolyta let Diana have dolls of men.
I’m more surprised that she somehow has dolls of people who aren’t even heroes yet.
Hmm…maybe The Super Dictionary should have specified that a “doll” is a toy that resembles a human. Because just calling it a “toy” puts it in the running to be a synonym for a toy truck. And that’s awkward.
(Supergirl Costume Tally: 8! Finally! But only because of what must be a coloring error because otherwise, Supergirl, when did you think spray-tanning your legs would be a good idea. Oh, and her shirt sleeves are shorter and she seems to be missing the deep V-neck of her 1970s costume.)
Seriously, it’s been ages! Not since back in the letter B!
That kid looks terrified, and with good reason! He’s totally just going to bed and Supergirl shows up and is like, “Hey, I’m going to spy on you whether you like it or not.”
You need to learn to respect people’s privacy, Kara. It’s an important part of being a superhero.
Kara, you look so pissed off. I thought you loved helping people, and here you are, laying on the beach, confessing to Clark how much you hate all this altruism.
Meanwhile, Clark is just laying there thinking “Oh my god, her head is HUGE. And when will she shut up. I am here to sunbathe my head and hands, not listen to Kara bitch bitch bitch.”
(Aw now I made myself sad.)
Well. Yeah they can. If they’re Kryptonians on Earth. It’s just that there aren’t any more Kryptonians (in pre-CoIE DCU).
And I bet Supergirl has to take out the trash and do other chores just like a million other daughters, so yeah, they can do the things Supergirl can do! Like going to the library, or taking care of a horse.
