Crying over comics

I start crying when I think of the many comic books that I sold or threw away years ago.

Adults hated them and couldn't get rid of them fast enough. Corrupting the youth of America!

Yep, it's "Samson"

James Lileks recently posted an unfortunately-drawn piece of cover art from the series. The hulking white girly-man in Spandex looks the same:

Comic

What comic book are they reading?

Cotton Shirts

That's an unusual shawl-collar shirt. Both boys' shirts are probably 100% cotton and look like they have been ironed. Note the sharp creases on comic book boy's shirt.

Love those "white sidewall" haircuts!

Shorts

I dunno, check out the comic book -- the big blond guy with long hair (Samson?) is wearing shorts.

The Forties....

....when no one wore shorts.
