I can’t exactly claim that this page is any sort of a “Tribute” to Bill Holman, it’s just that Katz needed a fireman’s helmet, so thought, “Why not borrow Smokey Stover’s?” (or one sort’a similar) You don’t really need to know anything about the Smokey Stover newspaper strip (Which was cancelled on Holman’s retirement in 72) – It was a totally bonkers comic and over the years Holman coined several nonsensical words or phrases that entered the vernacular, such as: “Notary Sojac”, “Scram gravy ain’t wavey” and “FOO” – which may have been the origin of the sobriquet “Foo Fighters” for UFOs during World War II…
Well, maybe the vast ancient civilization on Mars is still going strong, and them Librul Scintists are concealing the fact with faked-up “photos” actually made in a hangar in Area 51…
Stinky? Sure! Men are from Mars and women from Venus. That’s the eons of unwashed socks and underwear left behind when we moved to Earth. (wet towels, gym shirts… blown out sneakers…)
Bill, that’s brilliant! Now the mystery is solved… But if so, that kinda ruins the surprise for the next page, which is probably set in a rundown mens’ locker room of a rundown Martian gym…
it’s pretty obvious, from the chemical composition that Katz is picking up and other signs I do believe that the saucer did not make it anywhere, but crash landed back on Earth.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure they’re back on Earth.
