Psychoanalysis: The Comic

Posted in absurd, comics, vintage with tags , , on April 11, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Put down your superhero comics, folks. It’s time for PSYCHOANALYSIS! Faster than free associations! Stronger than neuroses! Able to leap elongated sofas in a single bound!

From Wiki:

Psychoanalysis was a short-lived comic book published by EC Comics in 1955, the fifth title in its New Direction line. The bi-monthly comic was published by William Gaines and edited by Al Feldstein. Psychoanalysis was approved by the Comics Code Authority, but newsstands were reluctant to display it. It lasted a total of four issues before being canceled along with EC’s other New Direction comics.

The comic featured three patients, Freddy Carter, Ellen Lyman and Mark Stone, who were undergoing psychoanalysis. The analyst was the central character. He was never named, simply listed as The Psychiatrist. Ellen Lyman did not appear in the fourth and final issue, having been cured in the third issue.

Later, all 4 issues were compiled in a book (and briefly re-issued individually in the 90’s).

Harley Quinn Retro Style Apron

Posted in comics, craft, geek, home, retro with tags , , , , on June 14, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve posted about handmade retro aprons and movie monster aprons before. Now here’s one for you sexy comic geeks.

Harley Quinn Apron:

I’ve got the long blonde hair…I think I could pull off a convincing Ms. Quinn at the stove. However, I personally would be be hesitant to cook in something handmade and pricey.

If you’re not into comics, you could opt for the mildly unsettling Pee Wee Herman style:
