    Twisted Toyfare Theatre is brilliant stuff. Each monthly issue of Toyfare magazine features a TTT strip. The two TPBs feature the "best of" out of all the strips from past issues. I highly recommend reading Toyfare magazine each month. Not only do you get TTT, but the entire magazine is littered with hilarious captions accompanying the toys that are featured. There's also "Big Shots", which are short, one panel TTT-style strips. You can try searching your local comic shop for back issues.

    My favourite so far is where Dr. Doom gets a job as a seceratary for the Fantastic Four and another is where them robots from Star Wars invade Spideys house. All brilliant stuff

    I think the recent issue with Cobra invading Spidey's house is classic. "Rent, Groceries, and Zartan cleans out your gutters once a month."

    Interesting to note - some of the earlier editions of Twisted Toyfare Theater (actually, back then it was called Twisted Mego Theater) featured DC characters as well as Marvel ones. Superman, Batman, and Robin were regular characters, along with a handfull of other DC guys.

    Then around issue 30 or so, the DC characters vanished and the strips became exclusively Marvel based.

    Here's where it gets weirder... one of the comics published in one of the trades, "Mister Spidey Goes To Couresant," was an older edition. When it first saw print, it featured Spidey and Superman in a parody of the Star Wars Intergalactic Senate scene. Superman sees the guy who was General Zod in Superman II and attacks him.

    In the trade, though, it has been mysteriously edited, and Iron Man has somehow replaced Superman. Very curious that Iron Man would attack General Zod....?

    Apparently DC must have not liked ToyFare making fun of their characters, and asked them to stop.

    Can anyone confirm what Russakin just said?

    I thought they were used but was confused by the first few issues in the TPB not having the characters used.
