When They Used to Make Comics for Women
But, you would see adds that are specifically targeted for women. I can't think of a comic, even Wonder Woman, that I've recently read that had an ad specifically targeting women. If you can, please pass it on, because I sure can't.
Anyway, I wanted to take you all back in time and share a bit of this nostalgia. This stuff was "hip" in the day, so the fashion and stories, while a bit offensive to many of today's woman, were acceptable and even idyllic.
The super skinny wastes make me laugh. And we complain about unrealistic women today - that third page in the top left panel - her waste is as thick as her arm. And how about the first page, where the cute lady cuts her shrubs with her hair and makeup done and a cute little outfit on.
