This is my 300th post to the Omnicom. Thanks to all the people who keep coming back for more each day! Don't forget I've got a free copy of Adventure 247 to give away, check out this one for the details.
So what better way to celebrate 300 posts than with some cheesecake? It is Beefcake/Cheesecake week, after all.
I was 11 years old when this one came out in summer of 1977. I have never thought of Ric Estrada and Jack Abel as cheesecake artists before (or since) but they really did a job on Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #232.
Here's a good shot of Saturn Girl in her 1970s hot pink bikini costume. Contrary to popular belief, Mike Grell did not design this one (a fan named K. Haven Metzger - Kim? - did in 1970), but she used it from 1970-1982.
The plot involved people being shrunk, which gave the artists a chance to do some worm's-eye-view of the festivities...
... and a bird's eye view of the little people. That's Shrinking Violet over to the right.
Here's Shrinking Violet wearing Saturn Girl's costume. Notice how she fills it out differently from Imra (2nd picture above).
The Planetary Chance Machine weighs in with a classic shot of the appropriately-named Dream Girl.
