Yup. This actually DID exist .. in 1971! Politically incorrect 1971 to be specific!
You can go HERE to see the entire comic, from an issue of National Lampoon made in 1971. Its incredible (and naughty!) artwork from Frank Frazetta (The cover) and the illustrations from Neal Adams, best known for his work on Batman, The Spectre, and one of his co-creations Ra's al Ghul.
I cannot tell you how sore I am after all the shoveling I did yesterday. I can barely move and I am sort of hoping that work will be cancelled tomorrow but that is probably too much to ask for. I was working on a caption last night that will probably be a blog exclusive since its not really geared towards anyone's preferences, but it does raise some interesting questions as to what a real life switch MIGHT entail, though when it gets finished, it could end like a typical caption. Not quire sure yet, and I don't think I'm in good enough of a mood to finish it off.
Side note to all this is the blog that hosts the Dragula comic has another blog that shows lots of old catalogs, vacation guides, and advertising ephemera. I loved looking at the graphic design choices of the different things he'd posted. This got me looking at old Sears Catalogs online. When I was young, I of course looked at toys/video games in the wish book, but I would often look at other things, and one of my earliest memories of anything TG was looking at the catalogs and wondering what it would be like to be dressed to the nines in the Easter outfits that the young women were wearing. I remember a female cousin about the same age hating her tights and mary janes and I would just sort of sigh in my head.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: What was your earliest TG memory? I've had quite a few as a youngster, so perhaps if you share yours below, I will post some more spread out over the next week or two. Were you jealous of slumber parties and makeovers? Curious to what was going on at the beauty parlor instead of the barber shop? Feel free to talk about it below.
