  1. He hasn’t meet Barbra Gordon has he?

  2. To give him credit, it is incredibly easy to kick cripples…

  3. For sure I know this because kicking cripples is a favorite hobby of mine?

  4. Gero and Oquies,
    As a physically challenged individual, your comments are in very bad taste. How would you like it if I ran you over with my power chair?

  5. I did hesitate a bit to publish this one because it’s so insensitive, but I think it’s good sometimes to look back five or six decades to see how different things were then. These 1940’s comics are full of race-baiting, slights about women being stupid, and stuff like the above that would never be published today, but which were completely unremarkable back then.

    And hey, at least it IS a bad guy saying it. He’s actually in the process of escaping from the sick ward of a factory that he’s about to bomb in this panel, so you know, he’s not exactly sympathetic.

  6. Wait. A factory with it’s own sick ward?
    Never mind. I don’t really want to know.
