Secret Panel (4)
Categories: Comics, Haw-Haw

Fourth in a series of twelve posts celebrating our favorite Silver Age comic double entendres.

Not double-entendres per se, but the comics of the ’60s and ’70s produced some of the best tone-deaf hipster slang to grace young adult literature. Teen Titans writer Bob Haney fancied himself a master of vernacular; he was a clueless bizarro-world Kerouac.

Teen Titans panel is from Brave and the Bold #54 (July 1964). The Superman-Batman panel is from unidentified issue of World’s Finest.
