Great Moments in Comics History: Justice League: The Rise of Arsenal #3 (Part Three)


The great thing about the iPad is that not only is it going to revolutionize portable media but also freebasing.


  1. Wow I wonder if his freebasing has anything to do with his other problem? I really need to buy this comic.

  2. Justice League: The Rise of Arsenal #3, the book that keeps on giving.

    I’m going to have to dig this out of the back issue bin. 

  3. I have no idea who arsenal is, apart from the football team, and he doesnt really seem to be rising anywhere; unless you count getting high. However I am loving these best moments and the acompanying comments. Inadvertently (i hope) the funniest comic art I have seen in a while.

  4. You’d think his nifty, new bionic arm would have a junk pan extension or something. 

  5. This splash page to me is the crown jewel of that issue! It is really something to behold.

  6. "junk pan extension"


  7. I’m sure Apple love the free publicity….

    Seriously, how does J.T. Krul have a

  8. @finbarbat – Inspector gadget is spinning in his grave.

  9. @finbarbat & @josh: Also his new arm should have hidden compartments for his stash. He’d make an effective drug mule but I bet that metal arm is hard to get through airport security.

  10. @JesTR-Hell no, I bet he has all sorts of Diplomatic Immunity.  You know from being a hero and all.  That is the next arc.  He gets in deep debt and has to use his hero cred to get kilos across boarders!

  11. I don’t get it.

  12. I’m so glad i got this issue, for laughs alone.  Can’t wait for part 4 with the cat!!

  13. The whole series is full of so bad they are funny moments.

  14. Finally, a reason for me to get an iPad.

  15. @drake: There’s an app for that?

  16. @JesTr-I think there are at least 50 of them.

  17. I’ve never freebased in my life, but from what I’ve seen in movies and reality TV, aren’t you supposed to use a tube of some kind to inhale the smoke? Here, it looks like he’s being invaded by some weird, late 70s grindhouse-movie ghost or something.

  18. You can do it without a straw, but you’ll won’t get as high and you’ll waste a lot of it.

  19. *you won’t get as high

    Also, he probably hasn’t done it in a while, thus any little bit is gonna fuck him up bad, so he doesn’t really need the straw or whatever.  If he’d built a tolerance up through constant use, this wouldn’t do much for him. 


  21. Please stop doing this Conor.  I’m already bitter enough that I paid money for this awful shit.

  22. @vadamowens: Are you kidding? Consdiering the amount of entertainment this issue has provided, I think it might be the best four bucks I’ve ever spent.

  23. Thank you.

  24. @conor well…I guess?

  25. where does one put their bow and arrows when drifting off into oblivion?

  26. I don’t understand why this is humorous. It’s actually messed up and sad.

  27. @JumpingJupiter – Agreed.

  28. I understand this is eerily close to what happened to Jeremy London a few weeks ago. Zing!
