Here's a nifty Bat-ad from 1942. Recently we wrote a little about Jerry Robinson, the original Bob Kane "ghost." The cover in this ad is a fine example of Robinson's work on the strip. In fact, Dick Grayson looks to me to be Robinson's work, also, but GCD says that "Batman Plays a Lone Hand" was (gasp!) really drawn by Bob Kane! Inks are credited to Robinson, though.
Yeesh. Dr. Wertham didn't need to do much distorting with headlines like these. "Batman and Robin Split Up!", leading to "Batman Plays a Lone Hand." Maybe Wertham was write, and they were all sex fiends.ReplyDelete
I think this one should fall under "Random panels of comic weirdness."
