Apropos Comics Rejects, Part 2

Posted on September 29, 2006

As noted before, not every Apropos Comic makes the cut. Every so often, though, I like to delve into the Apropos Rejects folder and give my readers a glimpse at what might have been (but, more often than not, really shouldn’t have been). Without further ado, I give you Super-Pope.

Super-Pope

With the Pope in the news lately, now seemed like the right time. I don’t even want to begin pondering the theological implications of the existence of both Super-Pope and Super Jesus.

Meanwhile, you know what’s funny? People falling down.

Farewell, Captain American Government

Posted on August 23, 2006

Captain American Government

Ladies and gentlement, with that final digitally remastered panel, I’m officially retiring our old pal Captain American Government from the Apropos Comics Universe. I’m afraid that punching people while explaining the inner workings of U.S. political institutions is only funny so many times. Okay, technically it’s always funny, but it’s time for me to broaden my horizons anyway. Oh, and retiring CapAmGov will free up more time to concentrate on crafting intricate jokes about Batman being a botanist in his spare time.

I believe that’s Wolverine getting shield-pwned by Captain American Government in the panel above. Cut the guy some slack, Cap; he is from Canada, y’know. Original image via Chris’s Invincible Super-Blog. The Apropos Comics archives are here and here.

Apropos Comics Rejects

Posted on July 18, 2006

Occasionally, I put together an Apropos Comic that just doesn’t make the cut. In fact, I have a folder on my desktop full of Apropos Rejects — comics that seemed like a good idea at the time, but just didn’t work out for one reason or another. What lies ahead isn’t pretty, and it certainly isn’t funny. Take Ironic Man, for instance:

You see, it’s extra ironic since none of the examples of irony cited in the lyrics are actually ironic. And it’s extra funny (theoretically) since the character’s name is Iron Man and you only need to add two letters to make it Ironic Man. Yeah, I know. Looking back, I had nothing to do with the funniest part of this comic — Tony Stark standing around in his Iron Undies.

Next up, we have Daredevil and Spidey, having some fun at the playground:

In hindsight, I think that one turned out less “funny” and more “mean to blind people.” Thor, God of Amateur Ornithology, on the other hand…

Yeah, I don’t know what I was going for there. I guess I thought it was funny that it looked like he was about to throw his hammer at a flock of birds. Comedy gold! I dig the font, though; it’s called “Ale & Wenches” (available for free download at Blambot, along with Creative Block — the font I use for the dialogue in most Apropos Comics).

Finally, good ol’ Bat-Botanist:

Yep, it’s true. Tomatoes are fruits. It was totally worth the time spent in Photoshop to establish that. Check out senior citizen Batman putting the hurt on Superman, though!
