Speaking of chickens...

In keeping with the theme (lately), I give you this, from FREEDOM AGENT #1 (Gold Key, 1963):


I'm sorry, but the first thing I thought of was "Time to make a batch of Mom's special barbeque sauce! A BIG batch!"

Giant chicken. Simply terrifying.

Or not.

OK...based on the comments on the cover, and the fact that the chicken is in the foreground, I'm wondering if perhaps the Freedom Agent is, in fact, THE CHICKEN!? Perhaps the dashing gentleman spy dressed inconspicuously in red and purple (and fantastic pirate boots!) is, in fact, there to save the Freedom Agent from being fricasseed? Iron Curtain?? More like Iron Chef!!

The more I look at that scan, the more I think she's right. Plus, the comic would be ten times cooler if it were about a chicken who is a secret agent. Honestly, who would ever suspect a chicken would be a spy?

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

You guys crack me up!

That does make a twisted kind of sense though... the perfect disguise... A GIANT CHICKEN! And it does have a very determined glint in it's eye... waiting for the right moment to STRIKE!

buck buck BA-KAWWWW!
