Quite Possibly the First Time the Word "Blog" was Used in Comics

In honour of "blog" being Merriam-Webster's "Word of the Year" for 2004, here's what I believe is the first occurrence of the word in a comic 1959.

In 1959, the Lois Lane comic featured Clark Kent and Lois Lane in a story in which our two favourite Daily Planet reporters end up in one of those "valleys that time forgot" that eventually appear in every suprerhero comic. It's typical "goofy age" Superman fare: Lois and Clark end up in some crazy situation in which Lois acts all stuck-up and Supes uses his powers surreptitiously.

What makes this comic noteworthy is the use of the word "blog". Unfortunately, it's not "blog" as in "weblog", but "Blog" as the name of a cave-dwelling nebbish.

nebbish NEB-ish, noun:
A weak-willed, timid, or ineffectual person.

You used to be a nebbish, a noodle, a fool
And now you're Mr. Big Time with your own private pool.
