harsh but fair

One of a handful of images reproduced in Jim Steranko’s unfinished History of Comics that left an indelible impression on my young mind and which means I will always have more automatic affection for even the worst of Golden Age comics than for anything that came after.

Back with a bang tomorrow.

Jill and I have posited that this scene, and particularly Maureen O’Brien’s delivery of the line “revolution!” is basically just Lettie’s internal monologue.
