1617 + 109 + 456 + 620 = 2802 scans (so far). This is an incredible number of bondage-related comic book covers! What's the relation? Is the captivity/subjectivity theme popular (subconsciously or consciously) among comic fans? Or is it something else, for more people?

Captivity is a plot device that allows continuing characters to live for another issue.

brain_drain: I bet you didn't know that The Producers was in DC continuity!

yeah, oddly enough, comics had a lot of stereotyping during WWII, delmoi.

Some of these covers seem kind of liek cheating. From these scans, it looks like, "1984" was a magazine wholly devoted to titillating comics. It's like having a collection of SF-themed magazine covers and including a bunch of Analogs.

You're off by ten, hatti.

Not real sure about this one, unless that girl in the front seat of the boat is tied up...

I think it might be Superman breaking his chains in the upper left corner, but I was wondering too.

Wow. Commie cowboys. I also like the addition of the Stetson-wearing camera crew in front of the tied up lady.

From hattifattener's link, what may be the greatest ever tag line:

"The slimy, crawly, slithering gropies do terrible things to pretty little girls!"

Great stuff. Haven't had any luck hoovering the images for offline browsing.

tentacle comic porn!

Excellent!

I'm sorry, being "trapped in a bubble" doesn't count as bondage. The rest kicks ass, though.

Mmmmm. Aunt May tied up & gagged. Mmmmmm.

Why don't you drop by the dungeon sometime? Mistress would like to change your mind.

brain_drain, this following makes perfect sense to a comic fan.
Wonder Woman #132 [1998]: Part 3 of 4 Wonder Woman and the Justice Society pursue Dark Angel back to Occupied Europe where the Nazis are only a nuisance compared to the demonic forces the ageless witch has at her disposal. Also: Artemis and Wonder Girl's search for Helena Sandsmark continues through a supernatural mystery that only deepens!

JHarris: Actually he was right. The magazine was originally titled 1984, but then they changed their name to 1994 when the 1980s actually began. Anyway, I don't think it's really a gotcha, the point of the site isn't bondage in innocent comics (i.e. commentary), it's bondage in any comics (i.e. fetish).
