Weekly Updates for 07/27/2012

Postby web-ed » Thu Jul 26, 2012 8:37 am

First, I did another batch of updates to the Comic Spanking Data Base. None of these items will be posted.

1. Little Audrey and Melvin #37 (Harvey, 1969) – this is now uncertain as I can't find any record of it anywhere. I'll leave it as "unconfirmed" for now. It wouldn't be of much interest in any case.
2. Feature Funnies #9 (June 1938) published by Comic Favorites (later Quality) – Joe Palooka (original Sunday strip date unknown). Joe spanks spoiled child star Nastica Gruntt, who actually isn't all that bratty, but is a little stuck-up.
3. Katy Keene #3 (1950 or 51, published by Archie) – looks like two more spankings of little sis. First is with hairbrush for asking Katy's boyfriends to bring her candy. Second is with a ukelele!
4. Sparkler #54 (April 1946) - published by United Feature. Katzenjammer Kids spank the Captain and another guy on cover (double spanking).
5. Startling Comics #42 (Nov. 1946) published by Standard. – Mama spanks son with hairbrush for gossiping on the telephone. Sister is walking away with pain starts indicating she got it first. Mama shown bending over 2 panels later, but no spanking for her, alas.
6 Feature Comics #93 (Nov. 1945) – more Big Top paddling as another clown paddles Butch. Hope this is the last one of these.

Most of this is either M/M or juvenile or both, which is why it won't be posted. Of some interest are the two additional Katy Keene / Little Sis spankings - this brings the known number of these to four, which is a lot! Early MLJ (Archie) comics have been insufficiently explored - there are still many basic questions scholars do not have answers for, such as indicia information that would give us precise publication dates, and based on the number of spankings I have found in the available issues I have always suspected there might well be more. Juvenile stuff such as Little Archie wouldn't be of much interest, nor Archie or Jughead getting spanked by their fathers, but an undiscovered early spanking of Betty or Veronica is a distinct possibility, and it would be great to have a second Suzy spanking or some other M/F scene!

By the way, the Data Base has now passed the 570 spankings mark :!:

For links to this week's updates please visit the Home Page by clicking on "Chicago Spanking Review" at the top of this or any other Forum page.

  • Doctor Cylon update - he adds Roger Rabbit to the three existing variations on "Jessica After the Spanking".
  • Humorama Series #99 - Secretary Spanking #28. This secretary is either crying before her spanking or is crying for more afterward - take a look and decide for yourselves. This rarity has never been seen before and would still be unknown but for a magazine we got a hold of thirty years ago!
  • Humorama Extra: A comparison of Humorama's best spanking cartoonists, The Big Five Plus One, Part 1. No new spanking cartoons here, but there are some other cartoon/comics works as we examine and compare nine separate characteristics of these six men. Next week in Part 2 we'll try to see how they managed to live as professional cartoonists as we assemble the available biographical information.
Super-Spanking Summer II continues with
  • Lady Death Spanks Pariah - This one gave us loads of problems back in June when we posted it - we couldn't get a copy of the book, and then we forgot where some better Lady Death spankings were, etc. - and now that we've got the whole book it's time to fill in a few details, like what Pariah did to deserve her spanking. If nothing else, you'll discover that Lady Death tended to run around with her bare bottom exposed, which while somewhat chilly in the winter only serves to whet our appetites for more spanking during this, the second summer of super-spanking!
  • Batman spanks Catwoman #6 by Tim - A long-delayed follow-up to the famous 1940 scene in which Batman threatened to spank Catwoman!
  • We love the idea of seeing Mary Marvel taken OTK :) . It never happened in the comics, but it happens here as longtime Marvel Family villain Black Adam spanks Mary Marvel on the bare in this piece by humor cartoonist Joe Gravel.

Was Batman Going to Marry Batgirl?

Postby web-ed » Thu Jul 26, 2012 9:40 am

butch46163@yahoo.com wrote:HI WEB-ED CSR!! Wasn`t there a comic back in the 60 where Batman was going to marry Batgirl? Meaning she has to be older than robin! :) Can`t say much about the new Batgirl who was a young girl that came after Robin left to become Nightwings! If anyone who I thought would give Batgirl a spanking it has to be the Joker! :lol:


There was no romance between Batman and Batgirl #2 (Barbara Gordon) in the 60's comics, although of course there could have been a gimmicky cover with Batgirl wearing a bridal veil or something. I almost seem to remember such a scene, but I think I'm just mixing it up with Supergirl marrying Mr. Mxyzptlk, which really was on a cover. However, I checked the relevant cover scans of Batman and Detective from 1967 - 1970 just now and couldn't find anything. Batman did romance Batwoman (Kathy Kane) in the early 60's, but I can't recall offhand how close to marriage they ever came. Very likely Kathy was ready to marry but Bruce wasn't.

There were hints of a possible romance between Batgirl and Robin during the 70's, but it never really got beyond some sparks when they teamed up. As I established in answer to Dan's question about their respective ages, there is no doubt that Batgirl was older, since she had to be at least a couple of years out of college during this time and he doesn't seem anywhere near graduation. I figure the difference to be 7 or 8 years, and in fact I recall a conversation between Dick and Bruce that touched on this point, although I can't remember which issue this took place in.

Retconning changed everything. The Barbara Gordon we see in the Batman animated cartoons is much younger than Dick Grayson, who in the 1992 series is still Robin but in some later cartoons has become Nightwing (this idea is left over from the pre-Crisis Earth-2 mythos, where the 40-something Batman is in semi-retirement and Dick Grayson must be at least 30, having adopted the Nightwing identity after reaching adulthood). This Barbara Gordon is still in her teens, although she might be older than the Tim Drake-Robin.

In the very bitter animated film Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, it is suggested that after Batgirl went to college and grew up she returned to Bruce and they became lovers. However, that period is not shown because the main action takes place some forty years later, when Bruce and Barbara are old and a very young man, Bruce's protege Terry McGinnis, has taken over as the new Batman. The love affair is surmised by McGinnis after he receives some stern warnings from now-Police Commissioner Barbara Gordon, who has followed in her father's footsteps.

And speaking of this film, we all know there was that caning scene with the Dee Dee twins, which you can view on the CSR Video page. The scene inspired El Manto Negro to do an OTK hand spanking of the twins by Nana Harley, and we'll be seeing that scene in the coming weeks as part of Super-Spanking Summer II! How's that for a smooth tie-in? :)

These were very exciting. Loved the Doc Cylon and JessicA ones- what a gorgeous, spankable bottom she has. Like to see a paddle used on it. Clever of him to come up with Coppertone parody. Thought the original ad depictede a little brat anyhow.
Nice discussion of the Humorama artists, very informative.
And lets have more of Tim's work.

hi web-ed,

Jessica on the beach does indeed remind me of the old Coppertone ad, although..............i don't remember that puppy having the same expression on his face as Roger does :lol: . nice hand print on that shapely bottom too :D . i think in the Stiles secretary spanking that i chose to believe that he's already spanked her once but she's rubbing her bottom wanting more. good thing he seems willing to help the poor dear out by turning her over again :D . i found your comparison article about the big 5 plus one to be really fascinating :D . i loved the comparison of the different drawing styles, strengths and weaknesses and attitudes of the various artists. when talking about Dan DeCarlo you mention, "Because his style uses the cartoonist's shorthand to denote a sexy girl, I feel the amount of eroticism is limited. Others may disagree about this, but I feel a certain amount of realism is necessary to produce an erotic effect, and a “compressed” drawing style, without many lines, cannot be too realistic, although of course it can be very good for storytelling or humor." after i read this i spent a certain amount of time going back and forth between him and the other artists and i see what you mean about the effect of fewer lines, however.........................i have to wonder if there aren't some other factors in play here. when i was reading about using few lines i got to thinking about Funbun. now i don't draw so i might be wrong about this but Funbun also seems to use this "shorthand" method of drawing but i think some of his stuff is pretty erotic. for one thing, there are the nice full bottoms as well as the camera angles. in addition to these i think Funbun shows more action than did DeCarlo. i would be interested in hearing what the rest of you have to say about this. in any case, i loved the article and i appreciate the time you spent getting this ready to present to us. thanks for the added information on the Lady Death spanks Pariah spanking. it's always nice to have the details. sounds to me like Tim knows when a spanking needs to be administered :D . i have to say that he might have drawn Batman enjoying the spanking more :lol: . after looking at the Mary Marvel spanking i have to wonder if Joe Gravel isn't related to Bill Ward :lol: nice full bottom but a little angular and needs some color. i like her comments too :lol: . more great updates. thanks, phil

As usual, Web-ed, you have supplied us with a great store of new spanking cartoons to look at and think about and salivate over. Thanks so much!

I won't have much to say about the Jessica Rabbit toon, since that is an extant drawing that your Doc Cylon is just playing around with. But following that, you've given us A LOT to savor.

The toon you call "Secretary Spanking No. 28" by Kirk Stiles is very interesting in spite of the fact that no spanking can be seen. The look of this toon cries out, "Spanking Coming Up!" and demands our attention. You have invited us to "take a look and decide for yourselves" whether the secretary is crying before her spanking or is crying for more afterward. The beauty of it is that, whichever option we choose, EITHER ONE is correct!

I agree that the secretary here is beautifully drawn, but I wonder if her left hand is really "rubbing her sore bottom." To me, that hand is positioned much HIGHER than where the meat of her buttocks would be. Since -- as you point out -- the boss is clearly beckoning her to get over his lap for a spanking, I get the feeling that her hand is just resting on her hip, as in "Oh dear, now I'm really in for it!" And that would mean, she has not actually been spanked... yet. But as I said above, either interpretation would be correct in our vivid imaginations.

Your essay on the "Comparison of the Humorama Big Five Plus One Spanking Cartoonists" merits much praise, as it reflects the enormous amount of work you have put into it.

Of your “Five plus one” I would submit that Bill Ward is the best pure artist of the lot, but his sense of humor is sadly beneath the other four. You put it well:

“I suspect the anger shown by many of his male spankers is a reflection of a hostility towards women.” Of course I don’t know the reasons behind your summation, but you’re right: None of Ward’s M/F spanking toons show any sympathy for the women. Stiles does, and so do Wenzel and DeCarlo. Perhaps Homer Provence was the most female-friendly spank artist, for he frequently has the spankee female deliver the punch line. “I know Morse code, Dear, and I love you too.”

Speaking of Provence, in presenting this essay you accidentally displayed an example of my Number One Fetish. No, it isn’t Spanking, though of course female spanking is very high on my fet-list. But my Number One, all-time, HIGHEST fetish is seeing a pretty woman raise her skirt to show her legs. And waddaya know, in your essay about the Big Five Plus One, you show us a Homer Provence cartoon where a girl is doing exactly that. Magnifique!

Your toon of Lady Death spanking a girl named, alternately, Eva or Pariah, is one of the few – the VERY FEW – F/F spanking toons I have ever downloaded. I liked it when you first posted it, partly because the artistry is simply marvelous, but also because it is one of the few spank toons in which the spankee is positioned perfectly over her tormentor’s knee. As you have often said, the spankee’s bottom should be directly over her spanker’s right leg, with the rest of her body draped comfortably across the person’s lap. And here, it is just so.

Thanks, too, for filling us in on the reasons behind Pariah’s punishment. I don’t know much about this Lady Death character, and I have never seen any comic books with her in them. But you have given us the best panels she was ever in, I’m sure of that.

Your friend “Tim” has given us another of his pencil sketches, this time with Batman spanking Catwoman. While his drawings do nothing for me, this post is interesting because you bring up the phrase “Papa spank!” And you’re right, back in the 1940s that phrase was used often. In the famous film “Casablanca” (1942) Humphrey Bogart suggests to Claude Rains that he does the Gestapo’s bidding because otherwise, “Gestapo Spank!”

But the phrase was already popular by then. I’ve seen and heard mention of it several times, not only in the 1948 musical “Kiss Me Kate,” but elsewhere.

Thanks again for the updates, Web-ed. You always come through for us.

Cheers,
Dan

Hi WEB-ED CSR!! Jessica Rabbit do have a very spankable bottom and I wish to have seen her get it otk but still I like the many spanking she got from Doctor Cylon and the humor Ohh he got me good alright :lol: What a bottom!! Love all the drawing from the big five plus one and I believe Dan DeCarlo to be a true spanko maybe Stiles and Ward who I think is mostly into S&M and bondage same as Eng and Stanton :D But after seeing so many of DeCarlo`s spanking drawing mainly secretaries make me think he into spanking :) How great was it back then when drawing a grown woman getting a spanking was not only sexy but funny wonder how something like this would play out today :lol: ? Thanks for showing the lead up to Pariah`s spanking from Lady Death !! Pariah seem just like a naughty brat making this spanking so justicfied only wish to see her put up a fight and struggle while over Lady Death knees :lol: Nice drawing. I think the secretary in the Kirk Stiles drawing wanted another spanking ! Judging by the way she is rubbing her bottom and crying maybe she into it :twisted: Really like this drawing and the way Stile shows off her bottom . Nice :) Batman spanks Catwoman #6 is good. Love that Batman is a man of his words :lol: If any Super hero I though would spank plenty of bad females Batman would be it :D He never hurt a woman punch or kick! and all the beautiful women he have been with both as Brue and Batman surly some of these ladies should have spent some time over his knees :lol: Think I saw the Black Adam spanks Mary Marvel drawing before NICE!!

I certainly agree that the mainstream was much more welcoming of "a grown woman getting a spanking" back in the day. It doesn't get much play in today's comics (except here at CSR), but of late I have become aware that such a scenario is not uncommon in television shows from, of all places, Brazil!

Since 1999, the year that "Suave Veneno" came out as a TV novela in Brazil, and was followed almost immediately by "Laços de Família" and "Perola Negra", our Brazilian neighbors have gleefully and unconcernedly turned to female spankings for crowd-pleasing scenes.

A spectacularly good OTK spanking of a grown but bratty woman was featured in "Alma Gemea" (2005), then came "Sete Pecados" in 2007, and a very public spanking for actress Regiane Alves in "Tempos Modernos" (2010). Deborah Secco, the same girl who was spanked in "Laços de Família" a dozen years earlier, returns for a second spanking -- from the same actor, José Mayer -- in the latest season of that Brazilian soap.

Don't know what it is, about these chicks named Deborah. Another actress, Deborah Evelyn, got a very good spanking -- also quite public -- in Brazil's "Caras & Bocas" (2010).

These few titles are, I am certain, only a fraction of the spank scenes to come from our equatorial friends down in Brazil lately. Don't know what's in the water down there, but whatever it is, it makes the public conducive to the kind of entertainment we adore, here at the Chicago Spanking Review.

Cheers,
Dan

I was especially gratified by the warm reception everyone gave to my article on The Big Five Plus One. This week, we'll have Part 2 of the article, in which I look at these artists' non-Humorama work (where available) and take a mercenary look at what kind of money I think they were making! Hope everyone likes it. :)

tanner wrote:And lets have more of Tim's work.

I have one more piece from Tim, a rather odd Superman/Lois spanking with belt and rhyming dialogue, which I may try to squeeze in this summer if I start doing one spanking from the "Superman Family" each week once all the "Batman Family" stuff is used up. Otherwise, we'll see it some time later.

You're very welcome, Phil. My comments about few lines may have been an over-simplification and are certainly debatable, but I do feel I'm on to something. I think the only work of Funbun I've ever posted on CSR has been some of his bare-bottom modifications, and it's possible that many CSR readers are unfamiliar with his work. I certainly regret the difficulty I had in saving the attachments on the Artastic Forum, because I didn't have time to get to Funbun's art, and while AF was still up I didn't want to repost Funbun's original work since AF was basically his baby. I just did a quick search of my old files, and I came up with this example:
Loosingcheerleadingsquad-animated_funbun_ua.gif
Losing Cheerleader Squad, by Funbun
Loosingcheerleadingsquad-animated_funbun_ua.gif (311.3 KiB) Viewed 990 times

This is certainly a fairly erotic piece given its handicap of being F/F, and it's undeniable that Funbun made do with relatively few lines. Without trying to sound like I'm walking away from my original point, I think that although few lines are used, the style is much different than caricature/shorthand, and that more details (as we would get from, say, Serpieri) would probably make it even more erotic. It's a subject worthy of more debate, and once I've got some time freed up (ha!) I plan to do a short article on Eroticism in Comic Art, in which we can explore these ideas further.

You're very welcome, Dan, and I appreciate your kind words. :)

On the Homer cartoon, I must admit that it wasn't entirely accidental. I had several of his cartoons readily available, but when I saw that one I immediately remembered your love of "seeing a pretty woman raise her skirt to show her legs" and decided to go with it. I'm glad you liked it as much as I thought you would :) .

Once again, I owe you much thanks. It's so great that you remember my fetish, and supply examples when you run across them!

Long ago, back before I became a spanko, I used to collect old magazines that had pics of pretty models posing with their skirts pulled up, smiling and showing off their pretty legs. I guess my collection now numbers in the HUNDREDS... and that includes hard copies in print magazines (got lots of those!), photos and artist renderings, plus the pics I have been able to collect here on the Internet.

I have a sister-in-law who, when she was younger, was quite proud of her legs, and she allowed me to photograph her in the "skirts up" position, several times over the years. She's too old for that now, alas, but at least I was able to upload her pics to my computer. I regularly salivate over them.

You and your spanko friends have undoubtedly seen the most popular "raised skirt" photo of all time. It's by Bettie Page, who usually posed with much less clothing than here. But when asked to give a "cheesecake" pose, she donned a regular dress and gave us this gem:


Image


And, of course, you have probably seen my own Holy Grail, an 8X10 photo which I found while rummaging through a bunch of old movie star photos at a film convention back in the day:

Image


To this day, I cannot look at photos like these without their generating a tumescence in my groin. As I say, I have hundreds of them. This last one, of Warner Bros. starlet Patrice Wymore (she was Errol Flynn's widow) was undoubtedly taken in or around 1951, as that was the year of her greatest stardom.

But enough. Yours is a message board for spankos, and I gladly return to that genre now. I hope this temporary departure from the Darling Subject will not be a turn-off for you and your guests. As I said before, keep 'em coming.

Cheers,
Dan
