DC Comics: 1, Comics Code Authority: 0

I can just see the DC Comics staff sitting in an office in late-1954 (the same year the Comics Code was established) swapping scripts and art around, setting bets on who can sneak the most obviously subversive scene into a book all while under the watchful eyes of the CCA censors.

I'm slightly surprised a story with homosexual and rubber-fetish subtexts made it to the printers.

From the unfortunately (yet, appropriately) titled DC Comic, My Greatest Adventure #1 (Jan-Feb 1955), "I Was King of Danger Island"

  1. Hm! It appears that "Danger Island" has a king AND a queen...

  2. Hmmm, if that's Howell, and they're trapped on an island, then the other guy must be... Lovey?
