"God speed, Screw-On Head."


It might be my favorite line of dialogue in American literature. It's from the one-off comic book The Amazing Screw-On Head by Mike Mignola, who is better known for the Hellboy series. 

I'm not a comic aficionado, but every now and then one captures my imagination, and Screw-On Head did it. He's an agent for President Abraham Lincoln (who speaks the line). He's a robot head that screws on to different bodies to suit the occasion. (Talk about vulnerability.) And he's on the trail of Emporer Zombie, who's looking to gain supernatural powers from a stolen "melon-sized jewel." Fear not, Screw-On Head is on the case.
