Lois Looming Large #2 Old Nag Edition

Ole Supes is pretty tactful talking about old age serums around his girlfriend. Also, it looks like Superman is jumping out of her compact. Weird!

Pitchman-A-Go-Go #90

When I was a kid we had a 1/32 scale slot car race set that my dad bought from Sears. It was massive and we ran the wheels off of those cars. Nowadays kids have to deal with those crappy HO scale crap. 1/32 is where the REAL MEN race!!!

Lois Looming Large #1 Burger Edition

I really loved the old Lois Lane books, not as much as those wild and crazy Jimmy Olsen books, but they were some of the best books around. One thing I enjoyed, besides how gorgeous and expressive Kurt Schaffenberger drew Lois, was the way in every story, almost always at the end, Lois would loom large in the foreground while we got to see some other action off in the background. It was great, expressive Lois emoting right in our face, her friends waaaay off in the distance, oblivious to the poor girls suffering/emoting/loving.

From Lois Lane #1 1958, "Lois Lane, Super-Chef"

Is it just me or does it look like Superman is just a torso cut in half and plopped onto the desk?
