Here's something you don't see every day


Alert reader Mike B. tipped me to this interesting comic book... WALT DISNEY'S COMICS #666! That's right... this comic has reached the spooky number favored by crypto-religious people as The Mark of the Beast. (If 666 is the Mark of the Beast, is 667 the Neighbor of the Beast?) But the best part? For this issue, the editors have chosen to print a never-before-published-in-America story that was produced in Italy in the 1940s. That story? "Mickey's Inferno", a retelling of "The Inferno" from Dante Alighieri's epic poem The Divine Comedy, in which the author (Mickey) is led on a tour of the Underworld by the Roman poet Virgil (Goofy).

So, literally, in WALT DISNEY'S COMICS #666, Mickey Mouse goes to Hell.

This comic book will be in the stores next Wednesday and is $6.95... reserve your copy now!


And then there's this...

Is DC still located at 666 5th avenue? I always thought that was interesting...

Nah, DC moved a while back. They now reside in the purgatory that is 1700 Broadway, NY, NY.
