So guess what I found, everyone?
As much as today's comics are rightfully lambasted for their persistent sexist under(and sometimes over-)tones, it speaks rather glowingly of social progress that even the openly misogynist comics fans (and creators) of today would probably shudder at some of the works of yesteryear. As none of the comics on that list appear to be inhabitants of scans_daily (this edition, at least; some of them had probably been posted before the Great Crash), I have taken it upon myself to
entertain you all with them.
First up... The Brave and the Bold
#63 by one Mr. Bob Haney, creator of the Teen Titans, technical creator of Wonder Girl, and one of the most batshit insane writers
of the Silver/Bronze age. I can't be certain, but I think
this was the first meeting between Supergirl and Wonder Woman (this was before The Brave and the Bold
turned into Batman and His Amazing Friends
); if true, both "Super-chicks" have my deepest sympathies. Worse, the cover is an insidious little piece: 100% accurate to the story, 0% indicative of the shitstorm of sexism we're all in for.( Warning: do not read while drinking fluids. I will not be held reponsible for getting you a new keyboard. )
