Golden Age Problems



So you thought you had problems? Golden-aged Superman had troubles that you ain't even thought of.
Take this story right here...or leave it, I don't care. But if you will, it shows the lengths that ol' Supes had to go to back then just to keep up the status quo .

Yep.
All that just to not be recognized as Clark.
Luckily all pedestrians in Metropolis are blind nowadays and Superman doesn't have to waste time worrying.

Under The Sea



Are you even ready for a fetish-filled adventure?
Welp, ready or not, here it comes.
And pay attention; there'll be a quiz later.
How many fetishes can you spot?

Promo Comic

capt00edit

Who doesn't love free comics?
Of course there's usually a catch to getting something for free. With comics it's usually because they're loaded with product placement advertising. Yet notice how very subtle the advertising is in this one. Why you might actually forget what they're pitching (yeah right).

Yeah, apparently Cap'n America steals motorcycles when he's off duty. Guess we learn something new every day.

Some Churchin' For You Urchins

Chick Tracts™, we've all seen 'em before right? Those little pamphlets that you find at the bus stop or on park benches? Ring a bell? If not, remember that Google is your friend.
Anyhoo, here's one I think you never saw before.......

Sunday Funnies: NANCY

NANCY000

We've looked at Nancy strips before, and before we're done, we'll look at lots more. With years and years of material, there's a lot to look at. Originally looked at with disdain amongst comic critics, it really didn't become accepted as a classic until after Bushmiller's death, sadly. Better late than never? Maybe.
The simple art and primarily visual gags are timeless and will likely appeal to even the most discerning of today's comic connoisseurs. Don't believe the hype? See for yourself.
