There was a time when LI'L JINX one-pagers dotted every single Archie-related comic for maybe 20-30 years...or at least it seemed that long. They were, in my opinion, ugly and generally unfunny. Here. though, we see an early example and while Jinx isn't the most attractive child character ever, it's much funnier and less stylized than the strip became. Question: Was this the first instance of a single parent in comics? I haven't seen the new, revived Jinx of recent vintage but I bet it isn't as funny as this.
