The O'Brine Twins

The O'Brine Twins were a couple of old salts who had a backup feature in Fox's BLUE BEETLE in 1948.

Reblogged from http://fourcolorshadows.blogspot.com/

Although it is not stated in the story that the O'Brine twins are sailors, their names are related to water and they both wear little sailor hats and striped shirts ( which used to be associated with sailors ). Otherwise they can be seen as more or less standard comedy figures, like "Woozy Winks" in Plastic man comics.



Again we see the moon identified as a woman.

Venus makes a brief appearance in one panel. This could be considered a sort of crossover, since Marvel ( then Atlas ) Comics had a Venus character in this period.
