Dotty-Al Hartley-1948

This fun forties tale of Al Hartley's DOTTY comes from a one-shot entitled FOUR TEENERS. Online definitions for the odd word "teener" include "young looking porn models dressed to look as though they are high school students," "1/16th of an ounce of methamphetamine," "an 18 pack of beer usually sold in gas stations or grocery stores" and "a measure of cocaine half the size of an eightball." This is a fun story with cute art by the later Archie regular who would one day create Spire Christian comics. Just odd it's from a comic whose title today reminds one of alcohol, drugs and teenage sex!
