Staked Out For Bears

A while back Eros Blog did a feature on an obscure comic book called The Adventures of Phoebe Zeit-Geist, which apparently opens with Our Heroine dangling naked in bondage below a flying helicopter as it swoops over a city. The bizarre bondage predicaments do not end there!

Now, as it happens I have a few panels from that comic floating around on my hard drive, so I went to take another look. I found this gem, in which Phoebe is “bound with ceremonial rawhide to the sacred posts, covered with dried fish, and abandoned”:

bondage girl is bear bait

Poor Phoebe. But trust me, she does not get devoured at this time.

…which is of course a near-quotation from the Princess Bride. Do I win a prize?

Sorry, no prize — but I’m delighted somebody caught the reference. ;-)

“Phoebe Zeitgeist” was a parody of “Modesty Blaise” [co-?]written by the late Michael O’Donoghue, who would later script the “National Lampoon”‘s “Cowgirls at War”, among many other pieces, then mived to “NBC’s Saturday Night” and left before its name was changed, then did little else that actually got made.

Though not particularly feminist—though he had little use for machismo—”Phoebe Zeitgeist” made a good point in that line by being a reasonable adventure comic well after Phoebe died: men continue to covet her usually naked, magically[?]-preserved,corpse, showing that she’s much more of an object to them than a person.
