Funny Pages v. 3 #10
Here, we see an unintelligent mobster not taking advantage of its hostage. Editors must keep the relative intelligence of the mobsters they use in mind.
Nowhere in the rules will you find swords being able to do extra damage as the result of a charge. It really seems like it should be a lance Ab is using in this scene anyway.
We also see evidence (which I had always presumed to be true anyway) that ogres cannot move as fast as horses.
Bank robberies in comic books are as old as comic books, but the new wrinkle here is that the robbers are robbing the post office. At least, the text tells us it's a post office; it looks suspiciously bank-like inside, down to the on-duty armed guard. Perhaps the guard came with the special delivery.
Note the unique weapon: the shoulder-mounted machine gun. A trophy item, or just badly drawn? You decide!
