If anyone thinks the "slap a Jap" thing is unacceptable, they should have seen the war-era cartoons still on TV when I was a kid in the 50s. The stereotyped, exaggerated way Japanese were portrayed was astonishing, considering the war had ended over a decade previously.

There`s nothing wrong with the Sunny cover. (Not even the kid is getting a view) Life Magazine in the 1930`s had a cover of a skater in a similar pose only with the camera shooting from about a foot up pointed at her crotch

It is sad, some people just like to start trouble.
Most were pre-50`s comics. "Slap a Jap" was a war time comic. And the one you posted Gerry looks to be a knock off of the 1980`s Marvels "Power Man" Luke Cage

Stuff like this makes me wonder what our times will look like 50 years from now.

The gold chain & medallion is a nice touch.

I see the offensiveness in the portrayal of racial minorities, but what is offensive about the Superman one where he asks for money from the oil drill guy? Seems like Superman asking for money was the PLOT OF THE STORY inside.

Look at the black people and the way they`re portrayed for one thing.

Pretending to not know why it`s offensive justm akes you look like dickbags.

Blackhawk comics updated their "Chop-Chop" character well ...





And The Spirit was one of THE most visually accomplished comic books ever.
