The Bitch-Slap as a Critical Plot Device Monday!

I have never run an entire story before, but courtesy of sPat, this is the most bitch-slap-centric, and therefore perhaps one of the most awesome, stories in the history of the medium from Jimmy Olsen #61:









Bitch-slaps and kangaroos.... Comics, you are too good to us.

See you tomorrow!

Wow. I don't even know where to start with this one.

Maybe the reason the girls don't like you, Jimmy, has less to do with your personality and more to do with the fact that you keep masks of your coworkers' faces in a suitcase. Dunno, just a thought.

And I bet that he-kangaroo can push around any girl kangaroo he wants and still get away with it.

"Wow. It remionds me of the length of my tongue when I was Elastic Lad."
This is the real reason all the girls like Jimmy.

Great story! What a sick and twisted individual would be a member of the Jimmy Olsen club?

Not to mention this would have been a gold mine for out-of-context dialogue. "she is heading right to may bedroom!" Why, Lois, who would habe thought :-)

A kangaroo punching a blindfolded woman in the head? Those early comic book creators really poured their fetishes into their work!

Think the writer had some home issues?

that comic is way too bizarre for words. I think the writer who wrote this definitely had issues...

Yay! I've finally every post. Loved 'em all too.

In other news I want to join the Jimmy Olsen club...granted he keeps the Jimmy in the box away from me that was amazingly creepy.

So...Jimmy, to avoid being bitten by a snake that strikes at high pitched noises...activates his ultrasonic signal watch?

Wow. Just wow. First off, panel one may be the ultimate "Superman is a dick" example. "Haha. Jimmy's relationship with Lucy is ruined!"

And on the first page, Lucy seems disappointed that her wussy man doesn't slap her around enough like a real man. Incredible.

I don't know why the producers of this comic, decided to give a special treat to this character, I mean Jimmy Olsen is only a secondary character, inclusive he don't know Viagra Online and all it benefits.
