Q-boy Short #49 Librarian Girl / The History Of Q-boy Part Part 47 (Censored)

So with the last Q-boy comic I was talking about Fletcher Hanks and the crazy ass comics he made in the early days of superheroes.  This comic is based on various comics of his most famous character, Stardust.

As crazy as this comic is that actual comics are scarily close to this.  Next time is a the 50th comic which will be a double page spectacular and the name of the comic will be officially changed to “The History Of Comics With Q-boy”… Oh yeah keep you eyes peeled for something special around 9pm on Monday in honor of a certain team-up.  On Tuesday-Thursday there will be new Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations.  See ya then and hope you enjoy!

Flint Henry is based on Fletcher Hanks.  Fletcher Hanks was an artist in the very early days of comics who wrote and drew some really whacked out stories.

The site “Dangerous Minds” has an article ( which you can check out here http://dangerousminds.net/comments/the_astonishingly_incompetent_superhero ) that describes how “Hanks drew superhero comics for a terribly short time—1939 to 1941—before dropping off the map altogether. It’s a bit of a miracle that we have so many of his comics in print, and much of that is due to the heroic labors of Paul Karasik”.  It adds that “In 2007 Karasik publishedI Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets!” and in 2009You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation!“” which collects pretty much all of his comics.  The article also states that “I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets”  “contains a 16-page comic by Karasik about discovering Hanks’ work and meeting with his (it turns out) estranged son”.  This story clearly shows that Hanks was an abusive drunk, who ended up abandoning his family and freezing to death.

The article goes on to add that “Hanks’ work had two primary characters, “Stardust the Super Wizard” and “Fantomah the Mystery Woman of the Jungle,” and a host of less interesting characters like Space Smith, Big Red McLane, and Whirlwind Carter”.  In the article Karasik is quoted as saying that “part of the fascination Hanks exerts is that he is a rare early case of a true auteur, a comics artist who “wrote, penciled, inked, lettered, and, I think, colored his work”.

I’ve read I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets!” and “You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation! and honestly I think only the Stardust comics are even “so crazy their good” good, and even those start to get stale especially when Stardust gets a bunch of kid sidekicks.  Still there’s something interesting about seeing these angry weird tales  that were made before the “rules” for making comics were established.

Anyways that’s that for this week. Next time we see Flint Henry’s Q-boy story.  Tuesday- Thurday there will be new Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations.  Hope you enjoy and see ya next time!
