1st Danger Room Reprint Edition, June 2005, 5 copies, green.
Easily one of the most cynical comix and crankiest intros I've ever created. Maybe it had something to do with the fact I felt I was starting to hit middle age in 1990. Who knows? Not me. But the middle age thing makes a great excuse.
Cover and contents: It's them damn giant reptiles again!
My brother had this song performed on stage in one of his plays. They consulted me about how I would carry the tune if sung out loud. You readers are lucky I don't have access to a mike for this blog, or I'd be singing every song from every comic I post.
I'm an equal opportunity wiseguy in terms of poking at the Right and Left.
Page 9, panel 1: Bush I, Reagan, Nixon, Johnson, Ford, among others, are in that glob.
Page 21, last panel: I drew this whole story around this panel.
Pages 24-25: The bibliography was updated in later editions. I've included a scan from the 2005 version.
