Welcome Back

I put up a poll back on the 22nd wanting people to vote on what would be the future of Watch This Space. One person voted. But during the time the poll was up I kind of figured out what I want to do. I do want to restore Watch This Space and I have things queued up to begin later this week including a new Story Series and Thursday Comics. A new but familiar feature will be this one: Capt. Brian's Whiz-Bang which will be like a simple blog entry focusing on whatever I want to talk about today that will end with commentary on "The Born Loser." If you don't want to read what I write then you can skip on down to the comic.

You may know "Whiz-Bang" from the early days of Fawcett Publications. Captain Billy's Whiz-Bang was started by Wilford Fawcett (Captain Billy) in 1919 and was a bawdy cartoon and humor magazine. It lasted until 1936 and Wilford died of a heart attack in 1940. Fawcett Publications went to Wilford's sons who began publishing comic books ultimately publishing Whiz Comics #2 which introduced Captain Marvel, now Shazam!.

"The best defense is a good offense. Know who said that? Mel, the cook on Alice."

But seriously, it's suggested that Chairman Mao first opined what would become "the best defense is a good offense." His quote was "the only real defense is active defense." The same strategy was also discussed by Machiavelli and Sun Tzu. I find it sad that a phrase used for war is now considered a sports analogy.
