Wertham is unsurprised

Gay Batman watercolors served with cease & desist letter. The pictures are still on the Artnet site for now -- some are not work-safe. These are all apparently "Gay Batman watercolors," though most of the pictures are simply "nude Batman watercolors" -- the kiss/snuggling, both of which are portrayed clothed, make the solo nude portraits gay, I guess. Understandable in headline shorthand, of course, and consistent with the usual meaning of male nudes/males tantalizingly half-clothed, but still interesting to me.

Thanks to Eve Tushnet for the link.
