At last this legendary story of courage and the indomitable human spirit has been fully restored for American audiences.


  1. Well, maybe Bill is in fact a lazy jerk. Ever think of it that way. Do we really want idle hands like Bill's messing with our petty electronics?

  2. Impossible. Just take a look at the visual clues present in this tableau of triumph. Bill, with his lantern jaw, perfect hair, and sensible flannel is obviously a paragon of workplace excellence. Mr. Bemis is almost certainly a non-human ferret hybrid wearing a tie, or perhaps some kind of demonic entity - as demonstrated by the curved, wicked talons present in panel two, and the halo of flames hovering above his crew-cut in panel four.

    The message is clear. Bill is a hero. And Electronics is the way.

  3. 3 Months Later:

    " boss...can I have my old job back? I ended up homeless, my wife left me and I'm forced to rummage through my neighbors' trash to find food..."

    "Tough cookie Bill. I got my OWN CIE books and now my 'crummy' job is a respectable business. Don't let the door hit you on the way out, jerk!"

    Bill ended up on the streets that winter and was found dead, curled up into a fetal position in an alleyway where some kids were playing stickball. He had kept the two books clutched to chest and had to be pried from his cold, dead hands.


  5. Bill kind of looks like he's doing a Ben inpirsination.
