Friday Fun – Tom McAn Gets Sexist


Bookmark and Share

Numerous companies have created comic books to promote their products and in 1958 Tom McAn did so to promote their shoes.  Called Crisis at the Carsons!, the story focuses on Suzy and her breaking her shoe before an important date.  It’s pretty impressive in how sexist it is.

It’s an interesting throwback to a time that many women have nightmares about today.  Now if only her chest was the size of her head and she was wearing tight spandex, this comic would have it all when it comes to insulting women.
