"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Every day this August I’ll be spotlighting strange but ultimately endearing comic stories, one a day (basically, we’re talking lots and lots of Silver Age comic books). Here is the archive of past installments of this feature.
Today we look at a weird “imaginary story” from Lois Lane #39 where Superman and Lois are married but Lois thinks Superman is hiding portraits of all of this old girlfriends because he is not over them. Hilarity ensues.
The artwork for this story was by the great Lois Lane artist, Kurt Schaffenberger. I don’t know who wrote it.
First off, how awesome is this alphabet game?
Anyhow, the kid opens up a vault and Lois is intrigued…
Naturally, Lois won’t let Superman explain (by the way, it is never really made clear if Lois even knows Superman is Clark Kent or not). And why would she when an explanation would finish the story prematurely?
Eventually, after hating him for awhile, Lois decides to get revenge on him by destroying his paintings…
I love the logic of “and Jimmy Olsen is in here, and obviously I couldn’t be bi-sexual! There – PROOF!”
Hmmm…that Jimmy Olsen painting seems more suspicious by the minute…
