What do you get when you take a mediocre premise, execute it poorly, and print it at odd angles on inferior paper?
Comic Scans Sans Inky Hands (CSSIH) prefers to let you discover the answer to that question firsthand — or rather, no-hands — by scanning printed artifacts from what by the early 1990s was already dubbed the Golden Age of Kitsch. Read these scanned pages and ponder them. What do they tell us of our ancestors? Of ourselves?
Unlike the earlier comics I’ve scanned, this chestnut is from the lovely people at Charlton Comics. Of course, it could easily have been printed by a drunken lemur. Each page required a minimum of three rescans since the panels were most emphatically not parallel to the spine. The pages were not all the same size, and I’m pretty sure the whole thing was printed on paper towels. And a color pallet that just cries out, “for want of a GIF”... but why should I rant when you can just snap your mouse?
