Superman Pulls a Boner.

Really.

Listen missy, while yes, many of us do it, we don’t all. And those who do are usually a little uncomfortable discussing it with a bunch of kids.

    It’s almost Family Guy the way they explain the premise of a misleading cover. I can just hear Stewie saying “Oh no! Superman is acting like a dick! *(opens comic)* Oh, I see! He wasn’t really! Ha ha!”

    The top right kid doesn’t really look like a kid. He looks more like a killer doll or something, or an evil semi-adult person. His choice in clothing doesn’t help.

    Apart from that, he’s not human either, but then we can’t expect a *girl* to know that, right? Everybody knows only guys read comics (yeah, right).

    So is the rest of the issue the kids reading a comic book and commenting about it? And then right before they get to the last page the weird guy in the weird checkerboard shirt says “This isn’t a lending library!” and kicks them out of his drug store/soda shop, then rushes to the back to fantasize about Superman pulling a boner?

    Or do they totally disregard the cover and actually tell a story about Superman blundering?

    Meanwhile, at Stately Wayne Manor:

    “Batman, we’re supposed to be studying the greatest boners in history! Why do you keep looking through that issue of Action Comics?”

    “Oh, no reason, Robin…”

    “I think the readers are getting dangerously genre-savvy, Julius. Maybe we should lay off the wacky covers for a while.” “Hell no! We’ll just run some in-house ads mocking them and then do a story where he has a nervous breakdown and exiles himself into space for a few issues. They be BEGGING us to make it all a misunderstanding.”
