"A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks
I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

Can we get some love for Mission Hill?
One of the best TV animations there ever were.
It’s a pity it got canceled so soon but then again it’s a miracle it was even made in the first place.
There’s a lot to love about this page!
What If? Age of Ultron #2 by Joe Keatinge & Ramon Villalobos.
Marvel’s more “mainstream” comics (ie the infinite Avengers titles, X-Men main books, sometimes even Spider-Man) are, like DC’s, sort of uninteresting to someone who’s been reading for a long time. Unlike DC, however, Marvel keeps putting out smaller books that are very very good and try different things with the story AND the art.
This new What If? Age of Ultron issue is one of them (each issue brings a different, self-containing story by a different creative team). Issue one was nice enough, but this one was really something. There’s a lot to love not just on this page, but in the whole comic, from the re-grouping of the 90’s “new Fantastic Four” to the characterizations, with a retired Spider-Man, a Zen Hulk and a version of Wolverine that is a clear homage to the Italian comic Corto Maltese.
The story itself is a straightforward tale that uses the characters very well, especially Spidey and Wolverine (I love it when writers can make Logan interesting, something he hasn’t been in regular comics for a long time). Quick and effective, it’s manages to do more in one issue than a lot of current sagas can’t accomplish in five. And the art, as you can see from above, is just spectacular.
This is definitely an issue you want to have in your collection, if you like any of these characters.
Thelonious Monk—“Bright Mississippi”
Monk’s Dream (Columbia 1963).
Good music to write or draw to. Or just to listen to.
Just finished watching this show. Definitely one of my all-time favorites now.
