A Quickie

I’m on the run, but I have something lovely for you, for varying values of lovely. I recently discovered Fletcher Hanks, in no small part to Batman’s Shameful Secret, and I want to share my newfound love with you. They’re just two images, fairly small, but well worth a read. This is the origin of a villain from a strip about a woman named Fantomah, who is some kind of awful witch in the jungle or something.

Look me in the eyes and tell me that this isn’t the greatest thing you’ve ever seen. I double dog dare you.

You may preorder a collection of Hanks’s work here. “I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets.” Everything I’ve seen from this man is insane and wonderful and awful all at the same time.

  1. Sorry, but from my perspective, that was either an unimpressive tale or an insufficient sampling.

  2. There’s something child-like and fantastic about how that story’s told, the bloke seems to, against all odds, bump into all these absolute fucker animals that come out of nowhere. The author really doesn’t seem to care whether its believable or not, and I love him for it.

    What really sold me on it is the “man-hating” elephant.

  3. Fletcher Hanks was absolutely amazing. Stardust the Super Wizard is the most hilariously overpowered superhero ever. He can, and will, do ANYTHING.


    I wish I could find the story where he fools an alien invasion set out to destroy earth by flying to the moon, extracting the MOON GAS(?!?!) from it and shaping it into a fake replica of earth that the aliens then blow up instead.
