“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.”

| 1975 Brannigan
Written in perfect UK English
Synopsis: Whilst an Yank attempts to bring a perpetrator to justice Scotland Yard forgets to water their lawn. Scotland Yard wilts and eventually turns brown. Brannigan, the Yank, states – – – for all to hear – – – “Epigrams succeed where epics fail.” The head of Scotland Yard scrutenizes Brannigan and responds “Bloody right Yank!” He immediatly pulls out his gun and shoots Brannigan in the dangling participle.
Rated: Dangling Participles.
Adjectives ending in –ing (and sometimes –ed) are called participles and must be used with care. Consider the following sentence:
Flitting gaily from flower to flower, the football player watched the bee.
If you said the last sentence to the football player’s face just the way it’s phrased above, you could end up a bloody pulp lying on the astroturf, because he might conclude you think he “flits gaily,” a thing most people in his profession don’t do, at least in public.
| 1975 Rooster Cogburn
This series of comic books was printed on down pillows.
Synopsis: An old man has a rooster that keeps on chasing the hens around the chicken coop. He (the old man) becomes enthused with the rooster’s sexual drive and attempts to emulate him. The chickens don’t much care for it.
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.’
