Why do all the super heroes have boy sidekicks instead of girl sidekicks? That would eliminate the gay jokes once and for all. But I guess it is more fun to have the innuendo there, because then we wouldn't have anything to make fun of.

I'd rather see a female Superhero with a young male sidekick. I don't know why. I just would.
AWESOME

There's another DC character named the star spangled kid who is a woman with a kinda young male sidekick.

If the illegitimate offspring of Peter Pan and Robin Hood can fight crime, then surely anyone can! Fame and fortune, here I come!

I like the facial hair Green Arrow, he seems a bit more "old spice" than his old school counterpart.

I agree that GA with facial hair is way better, but the older comics tend to be far more ridiculous and thus better fodder for redubbing.

The fifties GA was a hillarious batman knockoff. Arrow cave, Arrow Car, millionaire playboy, boy sidekick, etc.

Denny Oneil completely revamped him over the course of a couple of JLA issues into the character you know today, and it's the first example of what's now become formula. Taking an old, lackluster character, dusting him off and re-interpretting him as something totally new.

I liked your whole take on the boomerang arrow, Proto

Proto, obviously you heard of Spider-Man: One More Day. Do you plan on using it as the subject of your next Tales Frome The Longbox??

Yes! You'd better BELIEVE I'm going to be tearing that one apart in a Longbox column. It'll probably be going up in the next week or two.
after enough bourbon ...

Yes, Proto, those guns were just totally unable to be picked up again. Probably boomerificated or something.

BTW, what WERE Speedy and GA doingin that last panel?

Freaking hilarious.
