Poor Billy McWeepums - he just picked the wrong guy to idolize. To paraphrase Betty Draper on a recent Mad Men, he doesn't realize that the worst way to get close to Strongman is to love him!

This strip was actually inspired by my favorite comic book cover of all time, featuring a completely unrelated hero, "Superman":

Happy Father's Day to all Dads out there!

Golden Age Strongman Goes To The Movies!

Click to enlarge.
So there's a new Superman movie opening this week. The occasion reminded me of the release of Strongman's first movie, "Man of Strength". As you can see, he was none too pleased with the results. The production went ahead without his involvement (rumor has it he was unwilling to negotiate his licensing fee of $All). And, really, who wants to see a cheap and obvious knockoff with a slightly different name?

Check back on Sunday for an king-size, full-color Strongman Father's Day special edition!

It took me many years to realize I actually like the original Planet Of The Apes. The trial scene actually goes something like this. They were trying to make a serious point about racism or something but it's pretty hilarious!

Finally, I can't let a post like this go without linking to this:

UPDATE: I just wanted to acknowledge my brother Steve, who inspired the basic premise for this one during an Apes viewing. He's a funny guy, that Steve!
