PULSATING PIN-UPS PART SIX: BATMAN & ROBIN...
One thing that always bothered me about sidekicks
is that it sort of gave away a hero's secret identity. Take
CAPTAIN AMERICA for example, and his teen sidekick
BUCKY - which also 'happened' to be the name of STEVE
ROGERS' sidekick (and Camp mascot). Okay, in ROBIN's
case, his hero name was different from his real one, but an
older man kicking about with a teenager is a bit of a give-
away, right? At the very least, it's liable to get him
talked about - in a reputation-damaging way.
That said, however, this is a great pin-up by BRIAN
BOLLAND, so let's put all these nasty thoughts out of
our mind. You listening, FREDRIC WERTHAM?
