Q-boy Short # 21 The Butterfly Song And Some Girl With A “Q” On Her Chest / The History Of Q-boy Part 19
If panel 1 looks familiar you might recognize it from this…
That’s Action Comics #252, which is the first appearance of Supergirl. If you’ve followed these comics, and this blog you may have seen I’ve done a few of these homage covers (some being a combination of several covers). In the past I wouldn’t mention the original, and that if people got that it was a homage cover it would be a little bonus for them. I now realize that’s kinda dumb sorta defeats the purpose of doing them in the first place. So yeah anyways that’s Q-girl. The Butterfly Song is a whole other story. Me and my co-worker Reagan Myers (who also came up with many of the initial ideas for The Bastardized Ninja) started exchanging shows that we hadn’t watched, and I gave him Mad Men to which to both our surprises he liked a lot. One day he just came up with this tune he imagined would be an “end song” for an episode of Mad Men going “my daughter plants flowers in the summer time”. It was weird and creepy so it made it’s way here. Next time we’re back with a new Bastardized Ninja, where at least one of the mysteries left in the wake of the “3-Way Orgy Of Violence” storyline is addressed in a epilogue. In the next Q-boy short we see the first appearance of Q-girl in the comics. That’s it for now. Don’t touch your butteflies, don’t try to marry off your sister, and see ya next time!
