Ep.116 – Miss America No. 1 (1944)

Only Radical Leftist Ranting Can Save Us Now!

Jul 6, 2020

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée step in a big pile of Miss America no. 1 and spend an hour trying to wipe it off on the doormat! Travel back to 1944 and witness (or don't) the biggest comic book gimmick of them all: Miss America's inaugural issue was the first book in the industry to actively force anyone with a perfunctory sense of empathy to put it down and go find something else to do with their lives! Watch (or don't) as Miss America uses her powers of blind patriotism and ironic hypocrisy to embolden the very bigotry she's claiming to fight against! It's a book so depressing, so immoral, so offensive to basic human decency that it'll make even the most jaded listener ask, "Goddamn, when's the next Batman episode?" Soon, we promise!
