Every Silver Age Cliche in One Package.

Every Silver Age Cliche in One Package.

I’ve seen a lot of Silver Age covers, as you can imagine, and this one manages to send up just about every wacky Silver Age cliche in one cover. Space monkeys, I can deal with. Nuclear war against the dinosaurs, I can handle. Invading robots, I can understand. But what’s with the shark?

Why can I accept all the other wackiness in this cover unquestioningly, but not the shark?
