Archie Follows Batman, Tells Comics Code Authority to Suck It

Well, not exactly. But, come February 2011, the CCA will be dead and gone, as Archie comics were the last ones using it. It had a good run of censoring and regulating.

Hey! glad to see this. I know a woman did Brenda Starr but can't recall her name. Mary Schmich, also a Trib columnist, did the story line before it closed its newsroom.
You know Patricia Highsmith, right? The "Ripley" novelist? She did some writing for comics when younger, and she was ashamed of it.

Yeah, at one time it was considered pretty low on the chain. But, I wonder if she'd still be ashamed of it now, seeing how many women cartoonists are enjoying the art form and even having economic success with it.

MJ, the woman who did Brenda Starr was Dale Messick.
What I can't figure out is what either of these comments have to do with the Comics Code.
