Comic panels that kids don't understand today

When "dick" was a detective, "Poke" Bancroft earned his nickname the hard way. Some of these old comics don't translate, unless you watch old movies too. That's quite all right because some of today's won't translate to the next generation.

Plastic Man perversity?

I love old comic books, especially free digitized comic books I find online. Once copyright is gone, sites such as and post them. I found old issues of Plastic Man. And I have found a series of, what for the 1940s, perverse little images. Most of these barbie-doll like women just stroll by, not part of the story at all. One even has an underwear shot--extremely risque for the 40s. And I love the looks on Woozy as he walks by and gapes at the girls.
