Huh-Huh-Huh Heh-Heh

I found out the other day that MTV's Beavis and Butt-head will be making a return to the small screen.  I am looking forward to it because I used to watch Beavis and Butt-head in its original run from 1993 to 1997.  Marvel Comics (!) produced a Beavis and Butt-head comic book series which lasted for 28 issues between 1994 and 1996.  I have all but about two issues because after about issue 15, they started getting harder to find which is probably why there are only 28 issues.

The series focused on the dimwitted duo making trouble in and around Highland, instead of showcasing music videos, B&B made fun of comic books--Spider-Man, Wolverine, even low-tier heroes such as Nova, Deadpool and Quasar (who is in this issue).  It was good-natured juvenile fun but not necessarily a comic you would want someone to see you reading.
