Comic Books #57: Binky

Super DC Giant Presents Binky No. S-13 (October 1970)

Well, what do we have here?  I'm not even going to comment on the fact that this looks borderline pornographic at first glance.  Not even going to say it.

But let's read on in this Archie clone called Blinky, shall we? It's simply too good not to share.

It appears Binky (the guy) has been gone too long getting his babe, Peggy, some food.  Naturally, as in all Archie comics and clones, the guy is constantly on the verge of busting a nut and is at the constant mercy of his hormones.... thus he got distracted and is late.

But what's this? It seems a young tyke has found something buried in the sand...

Well, looky here! It's unidentified human remains. Probably just the skeleton of a murdered prostitute - nothing too troubling for a kids' comic book.  Let's go tell the lifeguard sleeping on rocks (?).

And here comes Binky.  I wonder how these two plots will merge...

Binky has to be the dumbest human being to have ever lived.  He's late with a sandwich and he thinks it turned his girlfriend into a skeleton.

And maybe just maybe these police officers should be looking into that dead body instead of worrying about a sandwich eating imbecile. Ya think?

    Now if only the skeleton murdered Binky...

    1. Hopefully he was remanded to a mental institution, where, a few years later, he was stabbed to death by a psychotic fellow inmate!

    I blame his parents for naming him Binky. His stupidity was a self fulfilling prophecy.

  3. Whaaaat? A kid finds a dead body and that gets turned into a "too late with the food" joke?! That is really pushing the limits of bad taste!

    Technically, Peggy must have been totally nude when she died. Where's the bathing suit?

    I notice he recovered sufficiently to eat his "dead" girlfriend's sandwich!!

  6. And what's a hot girl like that doing with such a total cretin in the first place?? Surely the first introduction - "Hi, my name's Binky!" - should have been enough to send her running!
    And did he not notice that she'd thoughtfully tidied away her beach blanket and radio before starving to death?

  7. Never even heard of this comic before.

    On a not-entirely-unrelated note, my Computer 120 teacher ws Mr. Binks. A few of us called him Binky Boo, based on a comedy sketch we liked. (not to his face, of course)

    Later, Binky was eaten by Pacman. His girlfriend currently "walks the streets" in Hollywood.
