Golden Age Moment of the Day (35)

From... some issue of Clue Comics or another... (one of the middlish ones; it's got Boy King's gangster twin brother Muggsy in it... Yes, really.) From Clue Comics comes this unique artifact...

A statue so disgusting even the Nazis didn't want to melt it down for their own use. (In case you can't read Boy King's description of it, he says "His 'goods' is the solid gold in this statue, which has only a thin bronze coat... King Eric the Gold's body is inside!! He had Swisslakia's gold melted---and poured over his body, so that the gold would be safe!!" Seriously.)

Eric the Gold totally puts a different implication into Golden Age comics, no?

-Signing off.
