Hey, I'd buy one...

Because I haven't yet been distracted from these issues by something shiny, I'm going to post another image from Golden Age Sandman.

Sandy Hawkins is a snappy dresser:



But what I want to know is where the hell you can find a teeny tiny tailored suit and trenchcoat combo that'll fit a boy that size.

Bet it cost a freakin' fortune. But it's the cutest thing *ever*! It's even got a little tie!

There's a part of me that never out grew dress-up dolls.

    I particularly like that Sandy is so nattily dressed wbhile Wes seems to be wearing a dressing gown.

    Do you think present-day Sand can form his silicate uniform into formal clothes, or does it only turn into the hunting suit? If he can use it to change costumes, I could actually see him in a espionage setting like Checkmate (since he's been absent so far from JSA)...

    Well, there was a scene in JSA, where he and Ted are watching Raging Bull only to get ambushed by the Injustice Society. The next panel, the uniform is starting to form over his skin, no sign of the previous casual clothes.

    And the bad guy says something about being able to manipulate the molecules of his costume. So maybe? It'd be a cool trick to use.

    And the absence seriously annoys me, especially as the ghost of Wesley looks like it's on next week's cover, and he should be there to see that! :-)

    That Jack Kirby was a great tailor! But, judging by the clothes, it looks like Wes doesn't have as many plans for the day as Sandy.

    Those premonitions of evil must cut down on one's social life.

    Actually in the next panels you'd see that the burgundy robe thing is actually a horrific suit.

    Honestly.

    This is why I don't buy it when writers try to blame the yellow and purple spandex on Dian or Sandy. *they* can actually dress themselves.
