Post Mrs. Grundy
A cellphone picture of a cover of an old pulp magazine I saw in a display. Reminded me of the Mrs. Grundy that Heinlein was wont to go on about. Sorry about the glare; I don't have a date on this magazine but would guess early '60s.

It's not a pulp magazine, but a comic book.

It's neither. It's an early example of a graphic novella. :D

And the character is named after the cultural meme, and intended to be similarly oppressive towards anything fun or licentious.

Veronica is still better than Betty, though Cheryl Blossom was the best :P

Except for hair color, I never could tell the difference between Veronica and Betty, or even Midge, for that matter.

Peter, from the price it would date from the late 60s or early 70s.

Good point. That series has never been concerned about being culturally up-to-date.

And I notice that everyone on the cover is wearing shoes.
