Matter Eating Lad!

Sometimes an image pops into your head and you need to scribble it down as quick as you can. That happened to me today when I was talking to my pal, the multi-talented John. As we were chatting, Matter Eating Lad, one of the heroes from the comic series, The Legion of Superheroes, happened to come up in the conversation. The result is the doodle you see here.

I know what you are thinking: How does something like Matter Eating Lad enter into the conversation of two grown men?

My question to you is: How does it not?

I won't explain my drawing here for the uninitiated among you, but you should know that Matter Eating Lad is a lad. Who eats matter.

You connect the dots.

That is one beautiful rendering! I look forward to your stint on the Legion. Call Paul Levitz immediately!

I LOVED The Legion of Superheroes, my favorite non-Marvel comic! I never did get Matter Eating Lad...and surprisingly, he was not part of any of the Legion couples!

Steve D- You are a riot. No really. You are.

Chris- Nothing to "get" about Matter Eating Lad. As I said, he's a lad, who eats matter. That's helpful if you need someone to eat the bars of a jail cell you're being held in. Or you're scared of a hamburger-shilling clown.

As for him not being part of any Legion couples, you may be right, but I was never comfortable with the looks he gave Bouncing Boy.

All I can say is beautiful drawing as usual. I know nothing about the Legion of Superheroes or Matter Eating Lad so I can't comment on that in any way. It does sound like you have riveting conversations, and I'm sorry I wasn't conferenced in. Maybe next time...

M.E.L. leaves clothes strewn about like pizza crusts. Must be nice to eat anything you want and keep your nice figure. High metabolism.
