Meet Miss Pepper-Joe Kubert/Bob Bean-1954

Although clearly "inspired" by radio's OUR MISS BROOKS, St. John, in the early fifties, produced two sparkling issues of MEET MISS PEPPER...or rather had them produced by the Joe Kubert/Norman Maurer shop. Norman and Joe were a major sign of quality during their brief time together and this humor title is no exception. The cover art is credited to Bob and Joe. Bob would be Bob Bean who presumably also did the bulk of the insides (although Kubert's distinctive style is obvious). Many years later, Mr. Bean would reunite with his old chum and become a teacher at the Kubert school!
