Comedian Caricatures in Batman


Here's a panel from an early 1940's BATMAN mystery in DETECTIVE COMICS in which the storyline features thinly disguised versions of famous movie and radio comedians being menaced by an unknown stalker! From left to right the REAL folks would be Eddie (Banjo Eyes) Cantor, W. C. Fields, Jack Benny, Fred Allen and...hmmm...Buster Keaton?


More substantial posts return in a few days so stay tuned!
