THE GHOST THAT HAUNTED MONEY

Yet more Kapitalism from beyond the Grave:



Unlike Asia, in Western Culture the bastards won't even let you get ahead in the Afterlife. The Status Quo must always be maintained even after death. Yeah, there's some scary subtexts inherent in this story, right enuff. Just as I always suspected: The Spectre is an Avatar of Kapital. A Corporate Avenger.

Now I get what Marx meant when he said that capital was an 'invisible hand" alloting "fortune and misfortune to men", "growing out of control" and "thwarting our plans" and "bringing to naught our calculations"

If only Karl had teamed up with Jack Kirby rather than that tedious Mr Engels.

Engels was crap at drawing people. He teamed up with Stan Lee to do one monster story in Tales of Suspense #32: "I fought Bolshevikk, the Beast from the Red Planet", but had an argument with Lee over money and never worked for Atlas-Marvel again.

Nah...I'm sure he did a 'Swimsuit Special' a few years later....

I don't mean to come over all 'definitive' here but I'm afraid Engels was already dead before the much rumoured Stan Lee collaboration. It was Lenin who did the swimsuit issue, dummies...

Yes, of course, Vlad 'The Dad' Lenin...loved his run on Nikolai Furi, Agent of S.M.E.R.S.H. It was total Post-Costructivist Pop-Art bedlam, 'specially #7 with that totally mental cover parodying Kandinski...
