Good came out of it because comics were very violent and scary at the time. When I look back on the covers even now they are frankly horrible, but I think he went too far with his take on Batman and Robin being 'a homosexual wish dream, etc. Although there was something in Wonder Woman being a sapphic bondage dominatrix.
Yeah, the people in National Publications used to express
concern that W.M. Marston's Wonder Woman stories were
full of bondage undertones. Mind you, some of
Alex Raymond's early Flash Gordon stories used to feature
topless women getting whipped, and those were published
in newspapers!
