Old Comics Teach Boys How to Be Men

Everyone knows Golden Age Comics can be, to be kind, inappropriate.  Have you ever wondered how the Silverage stacked up?  Well wonder no more because I'm about to tell you.

The book, Sarge Steel #1, from Charlton Comics, published December 1964.

The question, what to do when a woman is crying?  See the panel below...




So, what could you do?  Hug her to sooth her?  Talk to her calmly until she isn't frightened?

NOPE!  WRONG ON BOTH COUNTS!




And now you know how to deal with crying women!

Oh my on my how times have changed.

The Place Holder

So, today was my day to post and... I'm way behind.

Why?  Lots of reasons but one of them was the fact that I was in Cali this week. 

And if you were convinced that Cali is it's own unique little corner of the universe, check out this sign.  It seems like an ordinary sign sign you would see in any ol'parking lot.



BUT, upon closer inspection you will notice that my car, and the fact that I need to drive the car to work are equivalent to a pack of cigarettes?  Oh my.  A close up in case you can't see it...
