    Never seemed to watch the entire Buckaroo Banzai movie or even knew a comic of it existed.

    I wasn't aware of the comic but BB is one of the gem of my childhood. I love(d) the car and the trans-dimensional device.

    I really like them. They're a little like The Archies, if they had substance abuse problems...

    He took his creator's name and gained doctorates. Not hard to compute. Also, Frankenstein is a surname, and surnames are typically passed from father to son, and the whole point of the book is the monster attempting to find who he is (and by extension, find the only family he has, his "father"). To deny calling the monster Frankenstein is to side with Victor against his creation.

    Monsters be people too, yo.

    Yeah, I always figured that if the monster ever took a name, it would be Frankenstein, and it would be sorta like taking his fathers name. He is a Frankenstein.

    Well, since I've done Doc Frankenstein, I think it's time for that other Burlyman character:

    Well, I found most of the many awesome comics I've read from simply coming here. Paying attention to what people say is good. If I trust their judgement, then I give it a shot.

    Yeah, threads like these are invaluable for that. I try to bring back the DC one occasionally, but you're a hard act to follow. :yay:

    Anyway, today's is a new character from a book that's only about two issues in. I'm putting him up because after reading those two issues yesterday I'm already hugely impressed.
