Bill's Fan Fascination #6
How did we get back down here? Back in the dark creepy recesses of Bill's Fan Fascination? Dunno. Must be the cold medicine.
Anyway, here's the latest from America's Premiere Collection of Comic Books With Electric Fans On The Covers™... I give you BATMAN #129 (DC Comics, February 1960):
Wow. Staggering in it's electricfanitudinosity, isn't it? Witness the plight of Batwoman as she is tied to the blade of a GIANT FAN by some lame villain named The Spinner!
"DON'T COME ANY CLOSER, BATMAN, OR I'LL TURN THE FAN TO FULL SPEED-- AND BATWOMAN WILL BE DOOMED!"he shrieks maniacally! (This cover is a FAN-boy's dream by the way... actually using an electric fan to torture a superhero! I'm getting chills!) Waitaminnit. "Doomed"? To what? Having all the blood rush to her head? To having her hair stand straight up? Losing all the contents of her pockets? Having her face turn an embarassing shade of beet red? Getting nauseus? (Hey, Mister Operator, stop the ride, I'm gonna be sick!)
Anyway, Batman solves the dilemma by throwing a giant (pitch)fork into the electrical control panel of the fan... thus teaching the kids that if you want to stop an electrical appliance, just jam a fork in the outlet!
Gotcha, Old Chum. And that's exactly what you'll be... a bucket of old chum.
Is it hot in here?
