It couldn't get more 1950's if you tried

Mister Mystery #12 (July 1953) and The All New Atom #3 (Nov 2006)

Ollivetti did a nice eye injury homage cover for the Atom #3. And the hat-tips to 1950's pop-culture doesn't end at the cover. The interior features a knod to 50's horror films at a drive-in, defiled corpses a-plenty, gooey Spa-fonic parasitic monsters, invasion by communist aliens and a giant nude woman shoving a tiny man into a bodily orifice. Gail Simone also sneaks in a few commentaries about hypocrites and fanboys near the end. It was a fun issue, if a bit of a mash, and I hope Simone gets to the point quickly before everyone loses interest.
