Evil Comics: Marco Polo's Journey of Fucking, Part One



Okay, so once again, not very evil. But this masterpiece prompts me to ask a couple of questions:

Question #1: Could Sven Elvén, presumably a cartoonist of Swedish descent, ever have guessed that some of his work would be distorted and abused on an international weblog run by two Swedes some 67 years later? If so, would he have appreciated the irony? (Yes, we're talking the Alanis Morissette brand of irony here:

She exclaims, "Isn't it ironic...don't you think?" My answer: "No!" I have critically analyzed her lyrics and have found only 1 ironic episode therein.)

Question #2: Was Marco Polo, as all evidence (see pictorial depiction above) seems to indicate, primarily concerned with copulation? And was he gay or just experimenting?

The original comic was published in Action Comics #1 (June, 1938), but that version sucked. This one rules.

Assholes! This comic is the greatest accomplishment in the history of mankind, and yet not a single person is singing my praises. One day when YOU publish a comic about Marco Polo's journey of fucking I'll come to YOUR blog and NOT COMMENT. Then you'll be sorry.

Fuck! Guys! Sorry! I just re-entered the blogosphere and this was the first blog I came to check out. It appears I was too late. I'm a failure. A miserable failure.
