Pussycat-Jim Mooney-1970

From the mid-60s to the early '70s, arguably Marvel's most creative period, the company also turned out a number of short, sexy (and sexist) strips for Merry Marty Goodman's Men's Mag division starring dumb blonde Pussycat. Many episodes were written by Larry Leiber and artists included Wally Wood and Bill Ward but it was mainly longtime Supergirl artist Jim Mooney who drew her misadventures. Although considered naughty at the time, they're no more than PG-13 rated now, although the humor can be hard to take when viewed through a modern lens. My very first published article was about Pussycat 30 years ago in Amazing Heroes.
