Elasti-Girl The Good Parts Version 7

You know how it is.  You're tooling around the internet looking for fun size related comics and you come across something so awesome that you just have to share it with the world, but you don't want to get sued by DC/Time Warner for posting complete comic stories that legally belong to them so you abuse the hell out of the fair use clause of copyright law and just show the parts of the comic that are relevant to your interests and hope that their legal team is too busy going after people on Youtube who are posting that week's episode of Supergirl to send a cease and desist to your penny ante blog.

That's how this series started.  I'd known about Rita Farr aka Elasti-Girl for a damn long time, but had never read any of her original adventures with the Doom Patrol.  I was impressed by the art and the character treatment and decided to share what I'd found with the five or six people who actually read this blog.

Fair warning.  I'm mostly just cutting bits of Rita doing her size thing.  If you want the full stories you'll have to go elsewhere.  I don't even want to give full plot synopses of these issues since I am amazingly lazy don't want to be sued.

We're up to the seventh appearance of the Doom Patrol.  This issue marks the point where My Greatest Adventures renamed itself The Doom Patrol.  They kept the same numbering cause first issues weren't as big a thing back in the day.  So this is issue 86.

I've been keeping track of when Rita is size shifted on the cover.  She's not this time around, but I thought I'd include the cover this time to show the new title.  And Rita is looking pretty cute.

Oh, and there's a machine gun gorilla and a talking brain.

Elasti-Girl The Good Parts Version Part Six

There's a lot to unpack in this installment of E-GtGPV so I'm going to cut the usual explanation of why you aren't getting the full story and dive right in.

This week we're looking at My Greatest Adventure #85 and it's a doozy.  After a couple issues of a normal sized Rita on the cover DC wised up and had a more than full sized Elasti-Girl front and center this time around.

It's a solid action scene with a monster that reminds me of something out of 60's Scooby Doo cartoons.  Call me biased, but Rita dominates this cover.  It just gets better once you get inside.
