  1. Thanks for the LOL, TomO. And his X-ray vision couldn't have been a big help either.
    Wikipedia says that Tuesday the 15th was Dan Adkins' 74th birthday--such an improvement on Tex Blaisdell's (Wednesday's panel) inks, but, alas, that's true of so many.

  2. Happy (belated) Birthday Dan!

    And don't be too hard on old Tex, i have a soft spot for all of Curt Swan's regular inkers. With a career drawing Superman that lasted as long as Swan's did, it's fun to get a little variance with the different inking styles.

  3. Not to mention the oxygen tube in Perry's nose.

  4. I'm just thankful that the second hand smoke is going away from his oxygen tube.
