Mr. Terrific-Hal Sharp-1941

Since he first turned up in a Silver Age JLA/JSA crossover, I've always enjoyed the original Mister Terrific and his penchant for "Fair Play." At first I remember being disappointed that he wasn't the TV hero of the same name but later he became an odd favorite.

Bruce Barlow, Conquerer of Planets-1940

Yet another Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon type, in spite of the last panel's enticement to come back for the next adventure, this was his final one.

Little Lulu-John Stanley/Irv Tripp-1957

Little Lulu was one of the few strips that regularly addressed the existence of Thanksgiving and since Little Lulu was and remains one of the single best written comics of all time, here's another one for your holiday enjoyment.

Tiny-Waren Kremer(?)-1963

Yoe Books is coming out with a history of Black comic books and characters next year. I hope they don't forget Tiny, Harvey's quietly charming back-up and o-star in LITTLE AUDREY.

The Nearsighted Mister Magoo-1963

Here's a modernized, updated redo of that old favorite, Cinderella, done up here from 51 years ago and starring another old favorite, the nearsighted--and thus now politically incorrect-- Academy Award winning Mister Magoo himself!

Romeo Tubbs-"Don't Be a Dope"-1950

Not particularly well-drawn by our old friend Anonymous, here's the wonderfully named Romeo Tubbs (cousin to Wash Tubbs?), yet another short-lived Archie rip-off, this one from Fox after America's favorite teenager had already been around almost a decade.

Prof. Jogg's Travelogs-Basil Wolverton-1947

Hold your loose caboose! I don't need an obtuse excuse when I run Basil Wolverton work!

Jughead-Retcon Job-2005 (?)

Normally the Archie digests list creators even if the original publications the stories are reprinted from didn't. This wonderfully meta tale, of course, does not. Still, superhero universe fans are bound to be in on the joke!
