Transcript:

CAPTION: Death be not proud…or forever when you’re a superhero. But it sure sells comics! And here at Last Kiss, we’re anxious to give you readers what you so obviously desire: gratuitous death on an epic scale! Having a limited budget, though, we’ll have to use an old radio show trick and depend on you to supply the multi-million special effects…and most of the all-star, over-paid cast as well! Ready? Here goes!

PANEL #1: Lightning

SOUND: Zap

SOUND: Look out! It’s…

SOUND: Arrrggh!

SOUND: Yikes!

SOUND: Nooooo!

SOUND: Iiieeee!

PANEL 2: In a graveyard, a crying woman is comforted by a man. In the background, two men work with shovels to fill in a grave.

WOMAN: The entire Legion of Superfluous Heroes wiped out…in a bloody, depraved battle! Who’ll protect us from mindless carnage now?

MAN: Not the Comics Code! That’s for sure!!

CAPTION: Next: The Society of Stupid Pet Tricks gets neutered!

1952 Art: Art Saaf & Mike Peppe Right Panel Color: Diego Jourdan Pereira
