Hurry, While Supplies Last!

Believe it or not, today is Free Comic Book Day, probably because of the new Iron Man movie, and you can get a free comic book at participating dealers. You know Kevin will get Ratboy and share it with his new friends at the retirement home. (Not the movie called Ratboy.)

A pity Daria never got her own comic book, though Beavis and Butt-head did. Still, fans have given her some comic-book time of her own.

Ratboy appeared in a couple of stories by Galen "Lawndale Stalker" Hardesty: "Blood Oath of Patriots" and "Blood Oath of Patriots II: By Any Other Name." Ratboy got to meet Melody Powers. That meeting didn't go well at first.

What if Ratboy was a real superhero in Lawndale's universe? He's never appeared for real. He could also crawl through the wormhole in the back of Good Time Chinese. Could be fun.

Oh, trust me, I know. Bryan got nine free comics, and that doesn't include the back issues he picked up at the shops, either.

No Ratboy, though. :)

I was thinking maybe Kevin is actually Ratboy's alter ego. That would be interesting.
