“Never stay up on the barren heights of cleverness, but come down into the green valleys of silliness.”
In our previous episodes we left Juan Jain, born in North Norwich, NY, as the lead character in the comic book series “Captains of Nihilism.”

| 1951 Flying Leathernecks
This comic book series contains beautifully done artwork that often finds itself taped to the inside of grease monkeys locker doors.
Synopsis: A suspenseful series about a wayward lizard who is able to leap over sand dunes in a single bound. Juan Jain outdoes all of his previous superhero characters. Super leaping maneuvers, pirouettes, plies, releves and sautes. The ballerina shoe artwork is to die for.
| 1951 Operation Pacific
A comic book series for those semi-serious surgeons who tend to be cut-ups. The blood and gore depictions tend to be overdone. A USA Civil War Surgeons Kit is given to those readers who ordered the entire series by mail. (COD only; no checks, money orders or US stamps were accepted as payment.)
Synopsis: Juan Jain finds himself cast as the superhero “Dirty Fingernails” in this series. He is the lone castaway on a Pacific Ocean atoll. A surprising turn of events occurs when a boatload of lepers makes a navigation error and sails right past Hawaii. Dirty Fingernails chips some lava stone into scalpels and osteotomes. With these tools he removes the dangling participles from a variety of patients. Stubby Palms is a supporting superhero in this series.
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow so we can continue with the serious work of defining our superhero’s work and ‘Captains of whatever the hell I said above.’
