“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.”

| 1953 Hondo
This is the first “Chic-Pic” comic book series and appeared in book stands across the entire county of Monroe, Pennsylvania.
Synopsis: Our actor (turned comic book superhero) Juan Jain finds himself horseless and on foot, carrying his saddle and rifle. He is stopped by the Parkchester Police in central Bronx, NY. When asked his name he becomes confused and responds “Con Game.” He is immediately arrested and spends all of his time for the next dozen comic issues attempting to escape from the Vernon C. Bain barge jail located in the Avondale shipyard. In the final issue an old friend by the name of Cochise cuts the moorings of the barge jail and our superhero is seen floating out to sea.
| 1953 Island in the Sky
A comic book series that mocks Dante Alighieri’s “Devina Commedia.” It reverses the direction of the three levels of life; crap, crappier and crappiest. This upbeat series lifts the heart by avoiding all thoughts of past loves. Juan Jain is spectacular as he acts out the plot in two dimensional full color.
Synopsis: An unknown Italian spends his time scaring the hell out of every hack author who thinks he knows how to write a Canto.
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.’
