he has an ‘in’?… how… or who?…
“My girlfriend, Kandi Kane, works there. I think she knows the head guy or something.”
Good morning™, all!
Yeah he looks just like the character on the poster (not the dog, the boy).
Unc knows someone who might get him the part. Casting director?
Sorry but this has the makings of another train derailment. Granted it’s too soon to know for sure but the beginning isn’t promising.
Is team Tracy stuck in the 1930’s?
Is that 5:00 shadow or rust on uncle Steels face?
Good morning™, future stage stars !
Gotta give the kid credit for dressing the part he hopes to get. If he can read, in the right voice, he will be a shoo-in, with a well connected nudge by Unc metal filings. The 5 o’ shadow is fast approaching 9 pm.
with the closeup of Steely and his facial five o’clock stubble-shadow, NOW he looks a bit more dubious, shady and seedy…
I like his steely-blue eyes. They add to his “steely” look. I wonder what or who his connections are at the playhouse?
That steel plate on his forehead is absolutely rebolting…
The way that he’s drawn and where the plate is on his forehead. I would’ve called him Tommy Lobo.
Hey Ray. How would you advice the kid with his audition?
The plate on his forehead doesnt explain how the key stuck to his face back on October 3rd…this would be much more interesting if, instead of a ridiculous steel band on his brow (which looks more like Luke cage/power man’s headband from the 70’s and 80’s than anything menacing) steelface had a complete steel facial covering like dr doom, and the only way to judge his emotions is by his eyes….alas, that’s not to be
On a couple recent arcs there have been dynamite set-ups followed by lame/silly denouements. Once again I find myself optimistic about this introduction. I’ve no idea where it may be going at the moment, but I optimistically look forward to the continuation. Let’s hope it doesn’t suddenly veer into a tragic parody where impossible coincidence provides the resolution – once again crushing my hopes.
I’ve heard of having a steel plate in your head, but never AS your head.
I presume there’s an explanation for the plate on his forehead?
“But I don’t want an “in”. I want to get the part on my own!"
That drawing from the ad of Vitamin’s forthcoming production, sure looks like Annie with Sandy, from back in the day. Only with a boy, instead of Annie.
So far they guy doesn’t seem completely evil. It will be interesting to see where Mike is taking the character. I like Shelley’s character design. There’s a kind of dark and melancholy feel to him, and looks like some friends I’ve had in my life. The steel plate gives him a kind of Frankenstein’s monster hairline and makes me wonder if his existence is kind of pieced together in some analogous way. A mysterious backstory lends some intrigue to the character.
1-STEEL: I’ll lend you one a my cars if you got collateral. ROBERT: Got it right here, Uncle…
2-…A mint condition edition of Funny Papers! It’s worth a fortune (so far as you know)
3-STEEL: Yeah, right. Do I look like I gotta hole in my head??? ROBERT: Yes.
STEEL: Oh. Yeah. Always use a jack stand when working under a car, kid.
Robert’s part should be Pinhead !!!
If the piece of steel were located on top of his head, his name would be “Plate Pate.”
“Cuz, if dey don’t agree wit. me lil’. proposition, a while lotta’ dainty twinkle toze is gonna’ get stomped real good heh…heh…heh”
Av, I wish it was the 30s, the villains and stories were better. Starting with chrome up to the silly space stuff in the 60s. Pretty good run
Vitamin’s production (and his ever-present videographer-wife, Kandikane Lane-Flintheart) are thus inextricably intertwined with nephew Robert and Uncle Steelface, who seems to be our designated villain. So, who is Steelface “in” with at the Patterson? And what will come of Robert’s audition for his desired lookalike rôle in Funny Papers? Will he be part of whatever crime is going to be perpetrated, presumably by Steelface? Let it unfurl….
Same Tracy time… Same Tracy channel…
Steelface is reminding me of 1951’s EMPTY,the guy with a huge hole in his head from a police bullet.
Steelface apparently had some sort of “accident”,but was it at the hands of the police?
