Comic Book Hippies were really getting it from all sides, weren’t they?

  1. Well, there’s Roy Thomas…but on the other hand, there’s Jack Kirby and his warm, affectionate depiction of hippies and longhairs in Jimmy Olsen and the other Fourth World titles and beyond. I’ll take that trade-off any day.

    There’s also a lot of pro-hippie stuff in the late Sixties and early Seventies from Bob Haney. People often overlook that in his Teen Titans and Brave and the Bold because of his campy “teen lingo,” but look beyond the goofy and he’s unambiguously pro-counterculture. This view not too popular with Bob Kanigher, of course…
