It’s Dollman Monday!

While attempting to solve the problem of a “Poison Pistol”, going off as we speak, Doll Man makes crooks assume the position!

Did you notice the big rubber stamp on the cover? Collectors of Golden Age comics know this stamp well. It says “Bonnett’s Ohio’s Largest Back Issue Dealer of Magazines and Comics 502 E. 5th St, Dayton Ohio”. TONS of Golden Age comics you’ll see in collections and at conventions have this stamp from this used bookstore. Apparently thousands and thousands and thousands of comics went through the store in the 40s and 50s and 60s and got this rubber stamp defacing. The store started in 1939, the year Superman got his start, too. They must have rubber stamped a few Action #1′s in their day. Frank Pauer, ace cartoonist and editor of the National Cartoonist Society newsletter, took me to the still existing Bonnett’s a couple of months ago when I was visiting him. Alas, it was closed for the evening. Frank says the bookstore still sells comics (and incidently lots of fetish tapes and magazines), but have finally abandoned the stamp thingie–the ultimate humiliation.

    Interestingly, Doll Man is in a fairly normal flying pose — normal for a super-hero, anyway. This time it’s the villains who are in the suggestive posture, as if Doll Man’s punch caused one to bugger the other.

    That’s quite a super power!

  2. Craig Yoe Says:

    I like how the one villain’s tie flips up as his gun goes off–you can never have too many phallic symbols on a Doll Man cover!

    Yo Craig,
    Pappy’s Golden Age Comics Blogzine has posted an entire Doll Man story, and the cover might interest you as well, as it features our little friend patting a giant
    missile while urging us to buy war bonds. Talk about subliminal
    advertising! No wonder we won the war, what with Doll Man pimping for
    bonds…
