Chameleon Boy sure changed into some damned weird things.

I can only assume the Legion flight ring is helping a little here, as that doesn’t look too aerodynamic.

from Adventure Comics #355 (April 1967) by Otto Binder, Curt Swan & George Klein

    I just finished reading the recent Aquaman trade by Jim Aparo and there’s something about the way DC artists in the 60’s and 70’s drew octopi eyes that is downright…freaky.

    I suspect that this is just more evidence that, some time in the 60s, DC Comics was infiltrated by a Cthulhu cult, see also “666 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY”

    Isn’t that actually a winged septipus, Cham?

    Oh, okay, one of the tentacles could be hidden behind him. I won’t be “that guy.” But the tentacle he’s punching the eagle (PUNCHING AN EAGLE!) with seems to be based behind his wings, so maybe he has two on his “back.”

    Imagine how strangely John Forte would have drawn that thing.

  • Moosalini says:

    “Punching the Eagle” could be the comic equivalent for television’s “Jumping the Shark”
    Any other votes for that?
