get with the Computers That Can Say No To Drugs brought to you by Radio Shack and the Tandy Corporation of Ft. Worth Texas and the Whiz Kids - the COMPUTER Whiz Kids! It's all happening at Stupid Comics! 
Back in the 1980s we were saying "no" to drugs, just like the First Lady and Mr. T asked us to. We were saying "no" to drugs in so many ways - with terrible songs, with school rallies, and with promotional comic books published by electronics retailers! Can a comic book promote both saying "no" to drugs ...

Not one person rotated the Tulley toggle to unlock the hard drive and access the T-38 SCSI connection. Sad!

Portions of this article originally appeared at the now-defunct Anime Jump. A power-suit crime wave paralyzes Tokyo, and only one person can stop their reign of terror - a 13 year old girl with superhuman strength,...

explore America's complex relationship with bigotry, prejudice, real estate, and third-tier Archie Comics characters this week at Stupid Comics!!
(warning: this comic is from 1972 and is attempting to portray prejudical and bigoted attitudes, and as such uses unflattering racial terminology that is no longer considered acceptable. So don't get too freaked out.) Well, it's time to check in with Bingo, That Wilkin Boy, and find out what ...

take a long train ride with Uncle Sam as he tells you all about how the railroads made America great - this week at Mister Kitty's Stupid Comics! 
Whether you call it "the iron horse", "the choo-choo" or "the 6:02 that just left the station without me", there's no question the railroads were and are vital, frequently noisy ingredients of America's success. Those with questions or concerns about this statement are advised to check out this ...

when I was 2 I watched a cartoon called Prince Planet, and it lodged itself into my brain and stayed there ever since, resulting in a life spent seeking out & wallowing in various forms of mid-century Japanese pop culture. Why not let Prince Planet into your brain too, fifty years after his American TV debut? 
Fifty years ago a Japanese candy company, a Tokyo cartoon studio, an American production outfit, a future biker-movie star, and TV stations across America would join forces to bring us adventures that crossed the boundaries o...

Stupid Comics returns for 2017 with a tale of a monster masher who mashes monsters in a newly discovered galaxy on the other side of a black hole! Eject your thermo-pellets and get ready for action! 
They say the golden age of comics is 12, but I find that for our purposes, that magic age is in the late teens and early twenties, when youth, flush with disposable income, drawing skills honed by years of classroom boredom, and posessed of a generous supply of comics from which to swipe, gets the ...

let Japanese cartoons teach you all about the Bible and how two kids or sometimes three kids and a couple of robots go back in time and visit Jesus and all your favorite Bible stories! 
It's the 1980s. You're bored in front of the TV, punching buttons on that weird multiplex cable TV channel box with all the buttons and three levers, and you come across a Japanese cartoon that you've never seen, and it's abo...

get all excited about a super special thanksgiving party with none other than Big Boy of Bob's Big Boy fame! Bring Your Own Overalls! 
It's that time of year again, where we give thanks for the blessings of the previous year by packing the kids in the Country Squire and driving them to the nearest Bob's Big Boy. Wait, that isn't a Thanksgiving tradition? Well, it should be. For one thing, nobody has to wash dishes.

distract yourself from the collapse of Western civilization with goofy old comic books about teens who speak in impenetrable slang and ride bikes
And now it's time for another informative lesson in teen-age jargon from our host, Cookie, here seen behaving like a responsible mid-century American teenager. As an American teenager Cookie is well versed in all kinds of really confusing terminology, some of which make sense to us fifty years ...

Join the Men Of Massachusetts as they set sail against the sea, in search of fine sea foods to fill your tables! It's all at Stupid Comics! 
The sea holds many mysteries. And fish. And our mystery this week is, what state stands first in America's never-ending war on the ocean? Why, Massachusetts, of course! How do we know this? Comic books. Yes, not content to bellow at each other at traffic lights or pummel each other in bars, ...
