Oh dear. Four posts from three pages of material. I suspect Strange Tales #108 is going to divert our attention for a while...`

Is it me or is there something ridiculously archaic about robbing a masked society ball, stuffing the loot into oversized bags that really need to have the word 'swag' written on them? It reminds me somewhat of the Dennis Moore sketches in Monty Python's Flying Circus. (Skip to 5:50 for the exact scene, but the entire sketch is a blast)

Anyway, Johnny deals with these crooks in the only logical way - using his flame as giant scissors to gut the necks of the sacks. Not burn them. Cut them. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to suppress a rant about the physical properties of fire...
