Hey Kids! Comics!

(5) Jimmy Olsen #110
by CURT SWAN and MURPHY ANDERSON

SUPERMAN: "Jimmy, what are you doing to me with that Kryptonite laser scalpel?

JIMMY: "To save your life, I've changed you into a superhuman computer! Now, Superman, you'll be more than a match for Brainiac!"

WHAT SUPERMAN SHOULD SAY: "Jimmy, you inhuman monster! How can I live this way? You should have let me die! Who gives a rat's ass about Brainiac! And by the way, since when are you a computer brain surgeon?

WHAT JIMMY SHOULD SAY: "Ummm ... now that you mention it, I'm actually not! Isn't that just ... well ... SICK!"

(4) Star Spangled #124
by LEONARD STARR

It appears Dr. Thirteen, the Ghost Breaker, is having dark thoughts of suicide. It happens. But it shouldn't really be happening on the cover of a kid's comic book.

Oh, and another thing that shouldn't really be on the cover of a kid's comic: Semi-naked nymphs calling out this siren song: "Yes, jump Dr. Thirteen! Death is so sweet!"

Let me repeat that: "Death is so sweet!" Excuse me for asking, but WTF?!?!?! In all comicdom, this is perhaps the single line dialogue that is the most ...
SICK!"

(3) Superboy #189
by NICK CARDY


Wow. Superboy and his foster mother just walked in on Jonathan Kent, hanging by the neck from a noose and dead -- an apparent suicide. But don't worry everyone, this issue was approved by the "Comics Code Authority"!

I guess the "Comics Code Authority" sees nothing wrong with educating children that one day they may come home to find their own father hanging by the neck from a noose and dead. But, of course, there's PLENTY wrong with it. Not just wrong, but ...
SICK!"

(2) Adventure Comics #269
by CURT SWAN and SHELDON MOLDOFF


Taking sadistic animal abuse to a whole new level, "Superdog's Mean Master" has got poor, powerless Krypto chained up, and is forcing him to watch home movies.

Krypto thinks: "The fiend! Solar Boy knows that these scenes of bygone days... of me in action with Superboy when I had super powers, are breaking my heart!"

My God! The poor doggie! Reader, this cover is so twisted it almost ranked number one! Psychological dog torture? That is disgusting, horrible, and ever so ...
SICK!"
And now, the #1 SICKEST comic book cover ever published:

(1) Sandman Mystery Theater #58
PHOTO-COVER


"Mommy! Mommy! I just had a horrible nightmare! I dreamed there was a man, and he was shot in the head! And there was a big pool of blood! And the man had coins over his eyes, so it must have been a mob hit! And mommy -- it was all on a comic book cover!

"Now, now dear, it was just a dream! No one would ever put a horrible photograph like that on a comic book cover. If they did, it would be... disgusting! Revolting! And, I'm telling you for the LAST time... really, really ...
SICK!"
