Oh NOES! George seems to have gotten in over his head really fast. Is this the end? Will the Midnight Avenger have the shortest superhero career ever? Tune in NEXT TIME!

Right on with that Zenith for historical accuracy!

It occurred to me to wonder if Zenith still made TVs, or if they even still existed. I can't recall the last time I saw a Zenith television.

Next they'll be stealing the Quadrophonic!

Technicolor test patterns FTW! Ah yes, the days when a TV station actually went off the Air!

Love panels 3 and 4 the best, you pulled off a great impact with these!

In really hoping George is just day dreaming here, or its going to turn really nasty fastly!

Nope, George is not just daydreaming, it's really happening, though I'm having fun juxtaposing George's fantasies of his superhero life alongside the reality.

The good old days, when moving the tv set meant a hernia.

Not to mention that there were actual TV repairmen who would come right out to your house and FIX your TV set, because it was cheaper to get it repaired than just throw it away and buy a new one...

Just the right amount of them for Quadraphonic pilfering!

Several of the thugs already look like human subwoofers...

It could have been worse, it could have been one of the big record player consoles that took up half of the room.

This is really taking me back to the days when your TV and audio gear were *furniture*. I had a TV made out of wood right up through the 80's before it finally died for good.

I am convinced that George has so much good karma after his Christmas stunt that he will not end up in a bloody heap. I expect to see all the thugs suddenly get squished by a Godzilla foot. :)

The thugs question in the last panel is one i can relate to. If f.i Superman is so damn smart, why is he wearing is underwear over his longjohns?

Dad upgraded the console TV to a Zenith System 3 with Space Command. We were futuristic.

I still remember our first remote control. It was like magic!
