The Penguin - newly freed from prison - catches a bus. In the background of this scene sits a thin white girl with short black hair. This is Hopey, one of the main characters from the cult comic book "Love and Rockets". The man who drew this scene as a storyboard, Ronaldo Del Carmen, is a devoted fan of the comic and put her in as a shout-out to fellow fans. See more »

When you see the title to this particular story, you might guess "The Penguin" is involved. If so, your guess is correct.
Actually, it's not that much of a story. The Penguin is out of jail and kind of lonely. Nobody is there to great him at the prison, nor at his former home. However, the phone rings (how would that still be in service?) and the famous crook has been invited out for dinner with hottie "Veronica Vreeland," a red-heated, full-figured Veronica Lake. She and fellow party host/snob "Pierce" also have invited Mr. Cobblepot to their swanky party, hoping he'll help them make the society news.
The Penguin doesn't let the highbrow snobs down, kidnapping Veronica. Hey, she flirted with him and he got turned on. Came blame the poor penguin. "All I wanted was a friend," he said. I think he wanted a bit more, too. Anyway, it rallied to be a fun episode with some clever dialog. Marilu Henner of "Taxi" fame is the voice of Veronica.
Once again, beautiful colors and wonderful artwork highlight the show. I can never say enough good things for the people who drew these episodes
