We start today with a typically surreal silver age Superboy story. In this one, with art by the feature’s longtime artist George Papp, young Clark acts out his jealousy issues of his alter ego with a life-sized puppet!
After I was lucky enough to appear opposite the original radio Henry Aldrich (Ezra Stone) in an episode re-creation in the early 1990′s (as Homer Brown), I started collecting the Henry Aldrich comics from Dell and found the work of Bill Williams to be delightful. Here, Stanley Stories detects the possible input of John Stanley in an Aldrich story!
Back to DC for part one of a 1970′s Batgirl back-up story written by Frank Robbins and showcasing some slambang layouts by Gil Kane given a particularly polished finish by Murphy Anderson.
I’ve long had a soft spot for the Mad imitations of the 1950′s and here we have the first one I ever actually saw, Riot # 4 from Atlas (Marvel) featuring the art of Joe Maneely and Archie legend Dan DeCarlo.
