    On-topic: That’s a feline mask? Looks more like a beeline mask, complete with antennae.

    I thought the term “gat” was a newish urban slang thing. Very suprprised to see it in a 1946 comic book.

    @X-Stacy: Hmm, an excellent point you raise. I think I’ll go be disgusted now.

    @Dan Gonzalez: “Gat” meaning a gun (short for “gatling gun”) dates back to at least 1904, maybe earlier; “gatlin” was shorthand for any gun as early as the 1880s. The more you know!
