Need a comic book and a bean burrito? Then you're in luck!

Tony Stark, Drunk, is always funny; Tony Stark, having a Heart Attack, funny for younger audiences.  Somehow.
The Beat turned me onto this first: Marvel Comics, in Taco Bell's kids' meals this week! (Be sure to ask first, OK? I don't want you to buy a half-dozen kids meals just to get Little Einsteins non-chokable toys...) The Oldest and I went the other day, and got a couple of the books. There's Iron Man, Thor, Fantastic Four, and Avengers. (The panel above is from the Avengers issue.) They aren't bad (we don't have the Iron Man one yet!) but the best thing about them? Each one has a Chris Giarrusso Mini Marvels strip!

Per CBR's Comic Book Legends Revealed, Mini Marvels is being phased out to be replaced by the more-kiddy Superhero Squad, so enjoy them now! I would read a monthly Mini Marvels, for dead certain, and I reckon I'll have to keep an eye out for Giarrusso's own book, G-Man!

Something a little different today: I have two or three little posts that I need to finish, so I'm just going to put them up as they're done. As usual, no reason, just because.

Oh heck, the Mini-Marvels are practically the only things that I read from Marvel anymore! They're...they're CUTE!

I did like Iron Man lying there clutching his heart by the way.
