Gah Drang Googah Kada Koo

Ever notice that whenever cavemen are depicted in comic books it is always as brutish Cro-Magnons or Neanderthals, but at the same time the females of the tribe are always dressed sexily and have hair and makeup that reflects whatever is fashionably stylish at the time the story was published. I've lost count of how many stories I've read where the prehistoric cave woman or feral white queen of the jungle raised by tigers instinctively creates and wears fashions suitable for a 1950s jazz club singer.

Ghost Comics #9 - Gah Drang Googah Kada Koo
While having one of those dreams that turns out to be a shared experience with a girlfriend, the male protagonist of the story meets a hot Cave-MILF, who is drawn as a statuesque, leggy blond. Sure, she might have the body of a showgirl, but her heart is all monkey and she directs the rest of her tribe to kill the visitor when he makes some sort of cultural faux pax. Notice how one of her fur bikini-clad breasts breaks the fourth wall and deforms the comic panel border.

  1. For some reason I find it very hard to read that hand and arm properly, even though they are done with much more skill than a lot of foreshortening you see in comics. For several minutes I was going "what's that odd, vaguely egg shaped thing attached to her shoulder?".

    And to be fair, if it's a dream then she'd look like whatever the dreamer pictured her. Which doesn't excuse any other bimbo in a fur bikini, but still...

  2. Yeah, it's in a dream, but it is one of those dreams where he wakes up clutching an arrowhead or something and his girlfriend experienced the same dream.
