Tiny-Waren Kremer(?)-1963

Yoe Books is coming out with a history of Black comic books and characters next year. I hope they don't forget Tiny, Harvey's quietly charming back-up and o-star in LITTLE AUDREY.

Romeo Tubbs-"Don't Be a Dope"-1950

Not particularly well-drawn by our old friend Anonymous, here's the wonderfully named Romeo Tubbs (cousin to Wash Tubbs?), yet another short-lived Archie rip-off, this one from Fox after America's favorite teenager had already been around almost a decade.

Prof. Jogg's Travelogs-Basil Wolverton-1947

Hold your loose caboose! I don't need an obtuse excuse when I run Basil Wolverton work!

Jughead-Retcon Job-2005 (?)

Normally the Archie digests list creators even if the original publications the stories are reprinted from didn't. This wonderfully meta tale, of course, does not. Still, superhero universe fans are bound to be in on the joke!

Dickie Dean-Bob Montana-1942

The Vagabond-Ed Winarski-1941

Near the top of anybody's list of Oddest Comic Book Heroes ever, this guy is like a combination of W.C. Fields, Siegel and Shuster's later Funnyman and Red Skelton's Freddie the Freeloader!
