In the beginning, Kara wore a blue frock:

Action-Comics-252-p00

If it looked a bit like a high school cheerleader's outfit (back in the day when cheerleader outfits didn't show much skin and weren't all that tight fitting), that was probably intentional. And this suited her just fine all through high school and most of the way though college. And then, 12 years later, her editors belatedly realized the 60's had brought a sea change in fashion, and things started to get weird. Sartorial madness ensued )

And that is the long and sad story of Kara's closet of super outfits. Maybe someone sensible came along and rescued her from further sartorial shame by stealing all but the hotpants ensemble?

In some cases sadly, in other cases thankfully, we never got to see her wearing some of the other outfits in that closet, but evidence of their existence was preserved:Read more... )

What with many of us getting misty-eyed over the loss of the Superman-Lois Lane marriage, I thought I'd present a story that many of you (especially the young'uns) might never have seen.

Back in the day, Superman was so popular that not only did he have two titles (three if you count Superboy) but his girlfriend Lois Lane and pal Jimmy Olsen had their own spotlight series as well. Eventually, however, sales on these ancillary titles dropped enough that DC decided to merge them along with some other characters into one big book entitled "Superman Family."

It kept the numbering of "Jimmy Olsen" , and eventually reached #200. As a celebration of this milestone, the magazine had an extra-long imaginary story, depicting the future marriage anniversary of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.



I've tried to stick as closely as possible to the 1/3rd rule, so extreme choppiness ahead.

In the far-distant future of 2000 AD, forty-year old women wear hot pants unironically. )

Next time, more public domain!

In a previous post, we looked at the June Moone Enchantress' origin, in which she was basically a Sailor Moon type magical girl warrior in 1966, some decades before Naoko Takeuchi came up with the concept. Sadly, DC failed to realize what a cash cow this idea could turn into, and after three short stories, sent the character into limbo. So, how did the Enchantress go from magical girl to the insane witch we see in Justice League Dark? Here's the first step in that process.

[personal profile] sailorlibra requested Bronze Age Lois Lane. Here are 6 and a half pages from a 20-page story, "The Day Lois Lane Walked All Over Superman," from Superman Family #183, May-June 1977. It's also the story that gives us a rather famous image, one that I considered using as the preview image, but in the end I couldn't resist a lovely image from the Neal Adams-drawn cover, especially since it encapsulates part of the story I had to cut:


I-I'll do anything, Lois! J-just don't hurt me... )
Whatta ya think, gang? Cracky enough for ya?
