Not sure what a "Jolly Jumper" is/was, but being only about a year and a half when we lost JFK, I have absolutely no idea exactly what I was doing at that moment.

Thanks for the heads up on Superman and Spider-man (900 is the legacy numbering, counting from Amazing Spider-man #1 in the 1960s) Jeff.

Here's an example of a Jolly Jumper:

I would have been a little shy of five months old at the time.

What were you doing when JFK was assassinated?

Hanging around, waiting for things to develop.

I wouldn't be born for another five months.

I was 15 years (not months) old.

"900 is the legacy numbering, counting from Amazing Spider-man #1 in the 1960s"

I was being facetious.

#1-441 - Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #1-441

#442-700 - Amazing Spider-Man (1999) #1-58, #500-700

#701-733 - Superior Spider-Man (2013) #1-33

#734-751 - Amazing Spider-Man (2014) #1-18

#752-756 - Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows (2015) #1-5

#757-788 - Amazing Spider-Man (2015) #1-32

#789-801 - Amazing Spider-Man (2017) #789-801

#802-894 - Amazing Spider-Man (2018) #1-93

#895-899 - Amazing Spider-Man (2022) #1-5

But next month Marvel will release Amazing Fantasy #1000 and I have no idea how they arrived at that number, seeing as how Marvel Comics (1939) reached its "1000th" issue in 2019 but Amazing Fantasy (1961) #18 came out in 1995.

Been on a re-reading binge:

Legionnaires #54

The Incredible Hulk #418

Legion of Super-Heroes #38-39 (1993)

Archie Meets The Punisher

Star Trek #33 (1986)

The Mighty Thor #300

Batman/Elmer Fudd

Suicide Squad/The Banana Splits

Jason X Special

Heroes Anonymous #1-6

Wildguard: Fire Power

Wildguard Insider #1-3

Hawk & Dove #1-5 (1997)

I've been buying it all along, but I've finally started catching up with Rogues, a DC Black Label series starring Flash's Rogues' Gallery (but no Flash). It's a heist comic, as Captain Cold hatches a plan to rob the vault in Gorilla City. It's written by Josh WIlliamson, with art by Leomacs, whom I first encountered as the artist on Basketful of Heads. His art's no less wonderful here, and with the Black Label format, he's got a bigger canvas to play with. He takes full advantage of it. The art's glorious, and the story is a complete blast, as an aging Cold brings his buddies (and a few others) out of retirement one by one, and then leads them to Africa to steal Grodd's gold. Things go wrong, every step of the way. 

I'm a huge fan of heist movies, and a big fan of these characters, too. They really get to shine here, without the Flash around to thwart their plans. Here, getting in their own way, and finding themselves way over their heads, is enough.

At this point, also, I'll follow Leomacs pretty much anywhere. He's an incredible talent.

Does that mean you're going to start referring to me as "Jaafs" again? :)

Probably not, no.
