    Default DETROIT TIGERS COMICS PAGE




    I've started posting these in the game threads but since so many people seem to not like the game threads anymore I'm going to archive them here. Add your own if you'd like. Charles Liston has submitted some real zinger lines to pep these up, too. I'll probably get tired of it after a while but here it is for now.

    Love these, Bert!

    Does anyone remember those comics out of Japan, featuring the Tigers? I think they did them for other MLB teams as well, and I remember them from the mid-2000s.

    I forgot this one from a couple days ago. The first one, actually.

    None of the images are showing on my Firefox. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    I'm glad people like them. I'm enjoying it. The next two are actually better than what you've seen so far. One of the next two was Charles' idea.

    Also, although I'm using Chrome, my 12.0 Firefox was working fine on the graphics when I just checked.

    Thanks. I'm almost afraid to post the one I just made concerning the Apt 3G girls and the minor league draft. But I will. In the game thread after tomorrow's game then here.

    I'm trying to view these at work, and this is the Firefox version I have--3.6.23.
    As for IE, we're currently using 8.0.600.118702 (or whatever).

    I guess I'll have to check it out at home. The problems of working on ancient machinery.

    Awesome.

    Out of curiousity, what is the punishment for setting alight the grail-shaped beacon in Apartment 3-G?

    These remind of my brother's Far Side compilation book that had a section of goofs / panels that received criticisms for inappropriateness.

    One of the 'goofs' was that an editor 'accidentally' swapped the dialogue bubble from the Far Side and Dennis the Menace, such that a Far Side panel entitled 'Caveman Fortune-teller' (or something closely related) showed a fortune-teller asking the client if the client would make her a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and in the Dennis the Menace strip there appeared a panel where Dennis told Mr. Wilson that his head would end up on an anthropologist's desk one day.

    Don Larson's take was that the lines were funnier in the wrong strip than the ones they were intended. I see a parallel here. I suspect these strips are far funnier as presented than they originally were.

    Good observation. I remember that one, too, from whatever book it was in. Another thing these remind me of is Sealab 2021 from the Cartoon Network, which was essentially slightly-doctored visuals from the boring-*** Sealab 2020 cartoon, put together funny with new voices and ridiculous plots. Take that, subspace!

    Keep it up, Bert. I freakin' love these.

    Okay. I'll post this one early, just for you.

    EDIT: I think I'll post all the extra ones I have in the can right now. Waiting seems bogus and the internet is the world of short term memory and instant gratification anyway.

    I really did enjoy the Bill James one. The character in the comic is more than vaguely reminiscent of James himself.

    So... does anybody think that the transmogrifier gun from Calvin and Hobbes could be used to turn certain players on the team into actual MLB level players?

    This spot, and a place in my heart, is reserved for TC.
