A week or so ago, Dr. Hot Read’s Andy Serwin stumbled across a familiar face in an old Thor issue from back in 1972…MINE!
Prepare yourselves, this may blow your mind!
Here’s the issue for reference (Check your collection! Perhaps you can see this oddity in your own home!):
So, flipping through the comic, Andy came to this ad spread on pages 24 and 25…
Keen-eyed readers will spy this incredible spectacle immediately, but there at the top of the page in the center is what appears to be an illustration of me, Jim Gibbons—The Loudest Monkey himself!
Let me give you a quick comparison of some pictures, just in case you haven’t been shocked enough at this point…
Are you minds not blown?!
So, this means one of three things…
1) At some point in the future, I will travel back in time and become the inspiration for a series of fake facial hair because my ‘stache and burns are so “exciting” and “romantic.”
2) I’ve inadvertently become a living homage to 1970s facial hair fashion.
3) I am, in fact, exciting and romantic.
I’m pretty sure the correct answer is Choice 3, though I’d be pretty okay with Choice 1 as well! Either way, get a fake mustache, a van dyke and some sideburns and you can look as impressive as I do at any time!
Me? I look impressive ALL THE TIME!
