Back in 2010, the Agony Booth website reviewed a World’s Finest issue titled “Exit Batman–Enter Nightman!” Since this came from the Silver Age, expect silliness and strange plots. However, this issue had something extra special.
In a subplot involving an art robbery, the writers referenced the Laocoon sculpture.
Since I am relying only on selected scanned photos found on the website, I do not know if the sequential artists actually recreated the famous depiction of the snake bound trio.
It does raise some questions:
What kind of equipment did the robbers use when they attempted to steal it?
Out of all the art references the writers could have made, why this sculpture?
Did they randomly pick it out of an art history survey book?
What kind of education did the writers have that inspired them to mention Laocoon?
