What If Stan Lee Became A Plumber Instead Of A Comic Book Writer? - Rol Hirst

Panel One.

A computer screen shows an empty google search box.

Panel Two.

Fingers type on a computer keyboard.

Panel Three.

The google searchbox now displays the words "Thoughtalloons - One page of script a week. Every week brings a new character."

Panel Four.

A finger hits the return key on the keyboard.

Panel Five.


  1. Not only crazy meta but also using an image ref in leiu of a panel description. Getting all sorts of crazy on us, Mr Hirst.

    I dig.

    I also reject your truth. Comics would have found a way, and I would have been inspired still. Vault of Horror was still there. Sadly, Daredevil would not so that would suck.

  2. It's weird, but it works, even if I can't help but wonder why someone's looking up such a specific web page that doesn't have a reason for existing.

  3. Love it. Am definitely with Ryan in my enjoyment of how meta and pseudo-fourth wall breaking this is. The absurdity of searching for the website, combined with the image for a caption description, sells this one for me.
