New Feature: Comic Captions

The other day I got an idea for a new feature that will now run the first Wednesday of the month.  I got thinking that people on the Internet love "memes" where you take a picture and write a (hopefully) funny caption for it.

So the idea for this new "Comic Captions" feature is that I find a panel or two from a comic book and erase what's in the word bubbles.  Then you people fill in those bubbles however you choose.  Like memes or the old Mad Libs, it's always better if you try to come up with something hilarious and outrageous.

Sure it smacks of effort, but it could also be fun.

I'll get it started.  This comes from something called Voodoo, issue #10 I got with a free sampler from DC Comics.  Blue bubbles are the monsters and the white bubble is the heroine Voodoo.  The purple boxes are narration boxes, which I'll ignore.

Monsters:  Who's got next?  I do!  I do!
Voodoo:  Don't be fooled by my costume.  I'm not really down with the whole S&M thing.

OK that probably sucked, but let's see you do better.  Post it in the comments.

And happy Independence Day, fellow Americans.  Happy Wednesday for those who are not American.

Tomorrow I review Spider-Man...the old ones, not the reboot.  Had you going for a second, didn't I?


  1. My mind is a blank. I'll need to warm up to this. But I wouldn't want to let the opportunity pass to wish you a happy and safe Fourth of July.

  2. Voodoo. If this is a reenactment of when the ewoks tried to roast Han, they didn't use chains to tie him up.


  3. Monster 1: Merry Christmas!
    Monster 2: Happy Kwanza!
    Voodoo: These are chains, not wrapping paper!

    Ugh. Guess I'm bad at narrating, LOL!

  4. This sounds like a fun idea...although I can't think of anything for this picture. Maybe something will come to me later.

  5. Nice Idea. Will have to think on this one.
