A Chicago Spanking Review Non-Spanking Special Presentation:

Suzie, Like Skygirl

A few months back, we did a feature on Skygirl, a Fiction House comics heroine who should have been spanked but wasn't. She did spend a lot of time assuming spankable positions, however, in such a blatant T & A fashion that we thought she deserved a page in this gallery.

Having concluded our search through Archie Publications, we find that another heroine had similar proclivities - in fact, some of the poses look as if they were copied from Matt Baker's Skygirl. Her name was Suzie, and unlike Skygirl, she was spanked at least once (in PEP Comics #59). Because she was always in trouble, and because a large number of issues of her own comic, Suzie, are not available to us at the present time, we would not be surprised if there were another spanking scene out there (cheery thought). Until we can find it, let's content ourselves with ten examples of Suzie as she follows in Skygirl's footsteps.

suzie may get butted in pep #53

Let's begin with a panel from PEP Comics #53, six issues before the spanking. This one looks like it came straight out of vaudeville, with Suzie bending over about to be butted by a ram. This is the kind of gag we'd expect from Harry Sahle, who did the art (and presumably the script), and who did the spankings of Candy in this gallery.

For a few similar examples of high-level humor, see our post "Bulletman Blows an Opportunity" and Ripley's "Jeanie #17" under the Threats and Missed Opportunities topic on the Bulletin Board.

Suzie draws a bath for her employer, bending over in order to do so. Suzie attracts attention in a store by bending over. This is an unusual two-panel gag, reminiscent of The Benny Hill Show. Skygirl's rear end was normally positioned so only we, the reader, could appreciate it, but Suzie here bends over much to the delight of an elderly man who peers at her upraised bottom through his monocle.

Next we have one of the two poses that as we mentioned earlier look like they came straight out of Skygirl. Of course when beginning any electrical repairs as Suzie is here, it's necessary to bend over in order to reach the panel.

suzie falls in the OTK position in Pep Comics #57

From PEP Comics #57 (June 1946).

From the previous issue of PEP Comics. More slapstick humor, but the physics of the situation eludes us. How can a falling body wind up in the position Suzie does here, very close to classic OTK, and with head up and back nicely arched making it even better? Your guess is as good as ours. We think the rotund gentlemen should have spanked her for knocking him down so rudely. The artist is again unknown.

suzie bends over to examine blanket in Top-Notch Comics #31

From Top-Notch Laugh Comics #31 (December 1942).

Much in the same way that Skygirl would bend over to examine some aircraft part, Suzie here examines the workmanship of a blanket, of course bending all the way over in order to do so. Why couldn't just one instance of the silly M/M slapstick paddling that took place in some Archie books (like Zip Comics #44) have been transplanted here, in M/F format, where Suzie is so perfectly positioned to be on the receiving end of the paddle?

suzie tests her strength at a carnival in top-notch #32

From Top-Notch Laugh Comics #32 (January 1943).

Our last three examples come only one issue later (#32). For some reason, Suzie decides to test her strength with one of those old devices you used to see at carnivals. Lifting the mallet over her head gives us the opportunity for some slapstick humor as well as showcasing some of Suzie's attributes. (Art by Ed Goggin.)

suzie bends over again in top-notch #32

From Top-Notch Laugh Comics #32 (January 1943).

Later, Suzie shows us that she has a good heart.

We couldn't resist making a mirror image of the previous panel. We paddle with our right hand, you see...
