Pinky Lee was a lisping, mincing burlesque comic who reinvented himself without changing one bit as a lisping, mincing children's show host when TV came around, only to be back in the nostalgic burlesque revivals 20 years after that! During his TV heyday, marvel cashed in by giving him his own comic book.

This funny and well-drawn piece with its blonde Cleopatra is credited to Thurston Harper, an animator who worked for the pre-Mickey Disney and later on Fleischer's GULLIVER'S TRAVELS. He would also do some humor work for DC.

Wayne Howard adopted all the tropes of his mentor Wally Wood but never went on to develop a style of his own. This irritated Wood no end. Here's Wayne, though, with inks over Gil Kane pencils, just like Woody did from time to time a year or three earlier...only notably NOT as good a match. The script here is credited by GCD to Don Kraar who would later work with Gray Morrow on TARZAN.
