Yeah, it turned out like the 24-minute preview.


This strip is intentionally raunchy. A market for stuff like this 
actually existed in 1954. 
  I'll go to the opposite extreme when the Comic Code kicks in for 1955.

Lady wrestlers of the 1950s might have wrestled according to script. But 
they at least trained to wrestle, not just flop around on a mat and look 
pretty. This strip will of course assume they fought for real.

The Powernaut looks more and more like Dean Martin to me. In SW10, I 
begin to think Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis got their big break in 1946 
doing the first big-budget Powernaut movie featuring Le Resistant. 
(accent missing on purpose)  I'm still deciding about Dean Martin 
Powernaut movies of the 1950s, but I'm guessing "Powernaut vs. 
Kidnappers from Venus in 3-D" nearly wrecked his career. Let's see what 
it does for mine. Fortunately, I have a day job.

Turns out I'm an anally-fixated oedipal paranoid with 
south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've 
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
