Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #5, November-December 1958

From a time long before political correctness went mad comes this wonderful Curt Swan cover showcasing the, er, larger Lois Lane. I love the idea of a fun house mirror that makes our plump reporter look exactly like her old self. Lois frets while the Man of Steel looks on and smirks. What a cad!

I’m reminded of the bizarre turn of events in a Marvel comic in the mid-80s when former New Mutant Karma had gotten hugely obese, and then went for a walk through the desert — coming out the other side slim and svelte..!
