Wow, Satan in a baseball uniform! You have such esoteric comics.

Satan acts tough, but inside you know he wishes he had friends who would play on his team.

Great comics

I dunno why, but the title "beat the devil" reminds me of the movie, "Before the Devil knows you're dead", with Dustin Hoffman and Ethan Hawk. Great movie, you should watch it.

Wow, that movie is on next on my Netflix queue. How queer.

It's sort of funny having Satan in America's pasttime's uniform, sort of a full circle event with so much controversy with baseball and HGH.

I actually had that comic, I remember it well. It was some weird collection of sports stories that was kind of scary for a little kid, but I read it all the time.

According to what I've read, he can really put some heat on the ball.

Wow. It makes me wonder who was reading those comics, and why...

Those comic strips artists must have been having a harsh trip on the day they drew that one.
