The Comic Book Fools of April - Impulse's First Day of School

Every day in April I will be featuring a humorous comic (either an issue or a series of strips) that I found particularly amusing. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com the comic stories that are your favorites when it comes to hilarity, and I'll see if I can't feature some of them this month, as well!

Today we look at Bart Allen's first day of school, from Impulse #3, by Mark Waid, Humberto Ramos and Wayne Faucher...

In this issue, Bart Allen (the speedster hero from the future) begins his first day of school. His guardian, fellow super-fast hero, Max Mercury, gives him one "goal" for the day...

How does Bart do? Well, let's just say that the title of the tale, " How to Win Friends and Influence People," is meant as a joke...

From his first moment on campus...

After a kid sees Bart skip out on a class research assignment (Bart is off to France to stop some bad guys), he decides to rat him out...

The set-up continues...

As you might imagine, Waid spends the majority of the issue in this fashion, and it leads to a delirious finale when all of Bart's enemies come together in one massive...well...that would be spoiling it, wouldn't it? Go pick up this issue! It is a hilarious and well-orchestrated issue by Waid.

[NOTE: I previously featured this issue in the Year of Cool Comics, so I'm just cribbing from that entry. I couldn't go without featuring this book!]
