Monster of the Day #1264

I loves me some painted comic book covers!

Brain Boy didn’t last long, nor did he fight a lot of monsters (which might be why he didn’t last long) so we’ll move on tomorrow.

    I assume those folks at the bottom of the page are hypnotized, because they sure don’t look impressed by a giant dinosaur.

    Lambeau Field?

  • Flangepart

    Brain Boy? UH…what am we talkin’ bout, Willius? Never heard of that puppy before.

  • bgbear_rnh

    One school official with poor eyesight and a young Brian Boyd was plagued by an insufferable nickname for the rest of his school days.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Brain Boy? Okay, this one is new. Did he have any superpowers or was he a heroic explorer/crimefighter type in the Doc Savage mold?

  • Rock Baker

    A sort of EMPIRE OF THE ANTS with a dinosaur. Neat.

  • What a horrifically misnamed character. How much brains does it take to go flying into the maw of a T-rex?

  • Flangepart

    Google ‘brain boy comics’…to quoteth Arti Johnson “Verrry-Int-eresting.” The modern versions look like they might be a good read.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Hey, the heroes do stuff like that all the time in the Sharknado movies and come out just fine. Of course they usually have a chainsaw with them.

  • The operative word there is “chainsaw.” Chainsaws kill everything. It’s a proven fact, and if it isn’t, it’s too late for me to return all those chainsaws I bought.

    Brainy here doesn’t have a chainsaw. He doesn’t even have a rock or a helmet. All he has is a can do attitude. Which, after watching Attack on Titan, I know only leads to a horrible, horrible death when fighting monsters of T-Rex size.

    Along with flare guns and fire extinguishers….

  • Luke Blanchard

    He has a psychic duel with the dinosaur inside. The comic came out in Oct. 1962. Marvel’s Silver Age had started but it had yet to really hit its stride. DC’s had been going several years.
