I don't think I've mentioned this website before. There is a great site called Golden Age Comics Downloads
that lets you download free comics. This is basically my source for all those classic Golden Age knockouts. Some series' have knockouts in nearly every issue. It's quite an incredible resource, with hundreds of old comics. If you have nothing to do, you can check out that site. If you find a good scene, tell me the issue or send me the scan. Comics that I've already looked through will have a comment written by "prgram" or "redchina". I'm thinking we could make this into a massive distributed searching effort. I am certain there are hidden gems to be found on that site.
I also updated the gas and assorted databases AGAIN. Out of 132 comics I found 2 sleeping gas scenes. Those odds are better than usual. I estimate that if you search 250 completely random comics, you should find one gas scene. For a chloroforming, probably 2000. A decent head KO or general knockout can occur in 1 out of 50 comics. Those numbers are probably dead wrong. One thing is for sure, and that is chloroformings are RARE.
I while back I posted in my FAQ the standards to which I find a KO scene acceptable. I'm going to repeat them in this post. Keep this in mind when you send a scene alert:
1. Chloroform: I will accept ANY chloroform scene. Chloroform scenes are so rare, I don't care who the victim is, I just want to see a scene.
2. Sleeping Gas: victim(s) must be female. There must be evidence that she is fully unconscious. F/M scenes may also be accepted. Scenes should last more than one panel.
3. Head KO: the sleeper has to be female, and I don't think there is any exception to this rule. There must be a follow up panel showing the girl either asleep, waking up, or restrained. One panel scenes are too common and strongly discouraged.
4. Injections/Dart/Other: same rule as above. I generally prefer scenes that last 2 panels or more.
These are the rules I tend to follow now. I've been more lenient in the past, but my standards have risen. That's all I have to say for now.
Oh yeah, Captain America is dead.
