CCXX: He’s Been a Beary Bad Boy

The inspiration for Katsuko’s bears comes from an unlikely place — Action Comics #657. It’s the earliest Superman comic I owned, and in it, Toyman kidnaps kids using sleeping bags that transform into giant plush bears that carry the children inside while they’re still asleep. It was creepy then, and it’s creepy now. I love it.

Disclaimer: Katsuko did not invent these bears to kidnap children.
