Number 1495: Boody, Babe, Stanton and kinkiness

“The Mysterious Case of Mystery Mountain,” which was published in Babe, Darling of the Hills #8 (1949) has an aura of kinkiness. It has some startling panels, especially if you are unfamiliar with artist/creator Boody Rogers. Boody’s stuff often had a very oddball slant, so this isn’t all that out of line with his other work. It got its reputation from being published by Art Spiegelman in his Raw magazine years ago, and then again when it became known that Rogers’ assistant at the time was Eric Stanton, who had his own reputation for drawing kinky material. Google his name and you’ll see.

Stanton, unknown year. Stanton is caricatured in the story as Pinto Pete.

I scanned this story from my copy of the comic, which at one time was wet, so there was color bleeding throughout the book; I have done my best to clean up the scans.
