    Is it just me or is anyone else creeped out by all the not-so-subtle bondage covers?

      Go look at old Wonder Woman. It’s even worse.

      That being said – are those strips/covers/etc real? Obviously the art is, but is that really the original dialogue?

        I have a classic example of Wonder Woman bondage a bit down the page here.

        As for the reality of the comics, I’ve read a number of these. Certain titles in particular got really quite silly and slapped-together back in the day. And “pulling a boner” was once a common expression for “making a mistake,” so it’s not that hard to believe.

      Well, William Moulton Marston was an… interesting… character. I daresay that this was one of the few cases where the good Dr. Wertham was seeing things that were, in fact, there.
