Well, according to this website, people started painting and decorating trash cans in the 1980's. In addition, here's a Pac-Man trash can from the early 1980's. Hey, now there's an idea: decorative Satan Ninja 198X trash cans!
Are you calling our comic trash?! Heh, well, I guess it can be a little trashy at times...
In my experience, the decorative trash cans tended to be the smaller indoors types, like that Pac-Man one. I certainly don't recall seeing any painted trash cans sitting out on the curbs in the '80s.
Furthermore, will anybody at any point in this comic get shot to death while taking out the trash? If so, will the shooter say some garbage related pun like, "Time to take out the trash?"
Definitely something to consider. Apparently, taking out the trash was extremely hazardous, at least in the world of '80s movies.
So, will there be a future issue which will mostly be characters reminiscing about things they did in previous issues like, "Hey, remember that one time we played Crypts & Chimeras at that creepy house?", or "Hey, remember that time I used Psycho Sam and Snacky to weight lift?"
Great idea! A clip show version of a comic book. I wonder if that's ever been done?
In Hollywood movies all trash cans (or rubbish bins as we call them on this side of the pond) are metal so they make a satisfactory noise when knocked over - this is often accompanied by a cat howling. I was alive in the 80s, all of it, and I only remember the black plastic ones.
Right. All the trash cans in my neighborhood were like the one that the truck backs up into in the Rubbermaid commercial I linked to in my original post. However, the SN8X-verse is more inspired by '80s fiction than '80s reality, so the metal trash cans are more fitting for the setting.
Also, welcome to the forum, dude!
