Today in Comics History: Unhappy Halloween! Or...AM it? (No. It am.)

Happy Bizarro Halloween! from the planet known as Htrae! (Pronounced "hu-tray.")

Panel from "The Halloween Pranks of the Bizarro-Supermen!" in Adventure Comics #294 (March 1962), script by Jerry Siegel, pencils and inks by John Forte

Then, Bizarro No. 1 joins his "buddie-pals" for Halloween celebrations. Say, shouldn't that be "enemy-foes?" Also, instead of join, shouldn't that be "tear apart?" And instead of "then," should it be, "before?" Man, Bizarro World confuses me with its half-assed approach to being completely in reverse.

Ah, the good old days when Bizarro World was off somewhere in the same cosmos as Earth-1. No, according to Multiversity, it's the alternate dimension of Earth-29! Or, at least it will until midnight tonight, when it all gets blown up by Rebirth. BOOM! The New DC Universe...there's no stopping us now...from trying to undo every story since 1935.

So, Happy Halloween, guys! Trick's on you!

There's one thing Bizarro and I agree upon: "A Jerry Lewis mask! URK!"
