The Three Stooges-Norman Maurer-1954

By the time the Three Stooges came to comics at St. John, it was Shemp in the third spot, not Curly. With delightful MAD-style art by Norman Maurer, these early tales were amazing fun! Maurer would remain associated with the Stooges throughout the rest of his life, marrying Moe's daughter, helping them revive their career through television, producing their later features with Curly Joe and keeping a hand in later, lesser comics versions. Along the way, he and Joe Kubert developed the concept of 3-D comics!
