Famous Funnies #60
Eagle Scout Roy Powers reminds me that, whenever Heroes travel by sea, they almost always run into some storm, or hurricane. The 2nd edition Hideouts & Hoodlums basic book won't have room to talk about sea voyages, but if I ever get to the Advanced H&H Editor's Guide, I'll have to make sure to give a high chance of encountering inclement weather on any nautical, wandering encounter charts.
Something's not kosher about this, Skyroads...Speed says the canoe can go twice as fast as him. Okay, downstream, I could buy that, but upstream? Those are some strong oarsmen!
I'm sharing this because, not only does this educated Mayan school Sally on her cultural bias, but he then teaches her about fatalism. That is one cool character...
Not only is this gag from Life's Like That pretty funny, but it gives us a rare glimpse of a 1930s-era camper.
As if it even needed to be said -- why you don't want to get into a fight with a whale in H&H (this is from Dickie Dare).
