Cosmic Treadmill, ep. 21 - Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #106
By special request of Toby Hagen from 42shadesofgeek.co.uk, Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) read Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #106 cover dated November, 1970, a story titled "I Am Curious (Black)!" In the comic book, Lois Lane turns African-American for 24 hours, and in the podcast, Chris and Reggie fumble through the issue and a partial history of black representation in comics. It's unclear as to which one is more cringe-worthy!
