“From Whence Comes… Dominus?”
Written by Roy Thomas, Pencils by Jay Gavin, Inking by Dick Ayers, Lettering by Artie Simek, Edited by Stan Lee.

Don’t Blame The Flashman, Jack. Forbush Did It!

In Which We Find That Mutants Have No Concern For The Welfare Of The Working Equine, That Ultrabot Epilson Was Probably Always Picked Last For All The Robo-Ball Teams, And That The Sirian Slave Workers Look So Delicious You Could Eat Them With A Knife And Fork!

What Can I Say, Neo-Plasticism Makes Good Linolium!

If Richard Dreyfus shows up with a mound of mash potatoes, shoot him on sight.

No actual animals were harmed in the making of this…

What?! Really? Crap. Apparently Artie Simek kicked his Cockapoo, so we can kiss that disclaimer goodbye.

Snort.. quiet… quiet. Oh, man. He is going to be so pissed! Shhh. Snurk. OK, Ready. Go! WESTCHESTER HIGH FOREVER!

Sirius isn’t called the dog star for nothing.

Hey Number 3, either lose the shirt or hit the bricks. I need skin, not attitude. And what is going on with that pose, Number 2? Is that supposed to be sexy? Just heave the basket and twirl. Heave and twirl.

OK, Xavier. It is a bit of a fixer-upper. But look at these vaulted ceilings! You just can not find this much space in the city!
Fine. I’ll throw in utilities.

The X-Men were going to use this as their rendezvous site, but there was just too much giggling.

Cue the Scooby-Doo music. The next scene will be a long hallway lined with doors on both sides. Spoiler: Lucifer turns out to be Old Man Caruthers in a rubber mask.

I can’t decide if that is the best or worst panel of the issue. Thap, ideed.

Perhaps this wasn’t the best time to bring up the subject of unpaid overtime.

    I guess the Forbush Man/Funky Flashman back and forth was the forerunner of today’s East Coast West Side rapper beefs. Good thing Stan Lee didn’t flash a piece.

    I never knew you were so into rap. Thanks for all of the support Susan!
