Bongo & Bop-John Stanley/Bill Williams-1962

How many of today's generation can even begin to grasp the concept of "beatniks?" BONGO & BOP were back-up characters in the two and only 1962 issues of Dell's transitional title, KOOKIE. Written by LITTLE LULU guru John Stanley, the art for the KOOKIE issues was by Bill Williams, an underrated cartoonist who had previously done HERRY ALDRICH and went on to do MILLIE THE MODEL and, when he ended up at Marvel briefly, DENNIS THE MENACE.
