Proposals That Never Made It #1

Many are the comics that could have been. Here at Filing Cabinet of the Damned, we like to look back upon some of the comics that almost were. Here's one that almost was, and, in my opinion, should have been.

TOPO, THE WONDER OCTOPUS

Aquaman's octopus pal Topo strikes out for adventures of his own! Using only his suction cups, his ink sac, and amazing deductive skills, Topo the Wonder Octopus smashes spy rings, catches smugglers, and still finds the time to kick out the jams every Friday night at a backstreet joint in the Big Easy.

Courage is his middle name!

He may be an invertebrate, but he isn't spineless!

Criminals are sorry...to meet this calamari!*

* Yes, "calamari" means squid. But c'mon. It's a good tagline.

  • I guess the Legion of Super Pets mislaid his application. Or they have some kind of anti-cephalopod bigotry going on. You'd think by the 30th century they'd be more enlightened.

  • I wish I didn't know this, but this reminds me of "Henry the Octopus and his Underwater Big Band," a song by the Wiggles.

    Man, why didn't I get a vasectomy when I was fourteen?

  • Well, you know what they say...

    Many hands make light work.
