SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #207: More than Flash Thompson  
In the posts for MS. MARVEL #21, I commented how teen superheroes get their own "Flash Thompson." But each creative team tries to make that "Flash Thompson" more than just "Flash Thompson."

[personal profile] arilou_skiff said "The weird thing is that well... Flash Thompson has been more than Flash Thompson for ages. Ever since before he went to Vietnam."

The MAD Adventures of Captain Klutz (1967)  
Don Martin was billed for years "MAD Magazine's maddest artist". His humour is very slapstick with characters suffering absurd injuries and regenerating themselves in the following scene, complete with wacky sound effects which added to the comedy.

Captain Klutz was his take on superhero fans and stories in general. Ringo Fonebone, an avid comic book reader, became a superhero by accident when, trying to kill himself, he fell through several stories' worth of clothes and, full costumed, foiled a robbery in progress. When a police captain asked who he was, he said "I'm a klutz, captain" and a legend was born.

He got two books of his own, one in 1967 and one in 1983. I prefer the second one, but I don't have it anymore. So, scans from a story from the first book.

Don Martin passed away in 2000. His collected works can be found for sale in a hardcover edition. Not sure it includes Captain Klutz's solo books, though.

Also, this book had four co-authors, but it is unclear who wrote what. Anyway, we do not have tags for Dick DeBartolo, Phil Hahn, Jack Hanrahan or Don Martin.

Sergio Aragones' Groo #17 (1986)  
WHAT? No cheese-dipping wandering barbarian here?

Let's try and rectify it, shall we?

My very first Groo issue, by the way )

There's an Usagi Yojimbo story that pays homage to Groo and ends with this last scene.
