Naughty Superman

Frequent commenter Myra has an odd collection of items at her blog Gimrack Hospital.  She is always presenting odd medical history facts, devices or throws us completely for a loop with her fetish or corset posts.   There is a post over at that talks about a new book that is a compilation of toons drawn by Superman creator Joe Shuster which made me think of her.

It seems the rights to Superman were no longer his so in order to make ends meet, Joe decided to draw some racy cartoons for an under the counter magazine called “Nights of Horror”.  Well someone found out about it recently and decided to publish a collection called Secret Identity: The fetish art of Superman co-creator Joe Shuster. (link has examples for all you dirty minded readers)  Too bad Playboy wasn’t around yet.  He may have made a living drawing cartoons for them.

    very neat Bearman and I think Nursemyra would approve

  2. Interesting stuff Bear. The Drawn website is pretty cool.

  3. I’d created my own naughty Superman (in my mind, at least), but it was ruined by that TV series with Teri Hatcher in it. My Superman had harnessed the power of Kryptonite for sauciness.

  4. i knew that guy had to be a creeptown.

    Bearman Awesome ! 🙂

  6. There was a review about that book in the paper this weekend. Hey, have you read “The Ten Cent Plague”?

  7. I think you’d really like it. It’s all about the comic book scare of the 1950’s. A great read.

    I’d also suggest Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon. It’s a fictional take on the same thing. But real good.

    Wow, okay, that’s enough of me sounding like the Opray book club.

  8. Think back!

    They were written, printed, or blank pages fastened along one side and encased between protective covers. People who read lots of them had the word “worm” added the behind the word “book.” Once upon a time the word “face” did not preceed the word “book.”

    The history of books. It’s a story of greed, violence and sex!

  9. i suppose you have a point bearman. there is a creeptown inside of every man.

  10. As always Bearman you are right on. Creeptown is the good part. The Creepier the better, IMO.

    • Alan…I think that I would be interested in reading a post bout the history of books as long as it includes greed, violence and sex. Get on it.

      Brit and Daily, I think you two need to get together and compare notes. Tomato, Tamato.
