Number 465


Old Bugeyes is back


Froggy went a'courtin' — horror- — in this slimy tale from Journey Into Fear #19, from 1954.

Sorry about the reproduction; Journey Into Fear was published by Canadian publisher, Superior, whose printer was definitely inferior.

It's tragic to see heroic advertising folk suffer such a fate! But, in any event, this story just explains an awful lot about Canada.

Not the currently-popular Ickeian Reptiloids but Canadian Amphibioids! Very SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH which described a sort of Amphibioid devolution from mammal to fish... In Edward Bulwer Lytton's THE COMING RACE, the 'Vril-ya' believed themselves decended from frogs...

Actually, maybe this story represents thinly veiled, Anglo-Canadian fear of Quebecois take-over.

Apparently Kermit was right, it's not easy being green (if you're a human now transformed!)

I hope Kitty doesn't hear any of this Canadian bashing... her claws are sharp!
