Imprisoned by Frizz-Young Love-1973

Joe Simon is generally credited with creating the romance comic book and in the early '70s, he briefly returned to the genre. The art on this--Creig Flessel? Simon himself?--is quite good and the protagonist quite cutely drawn!

Jumpin' Jack 'N' the Beanstalk-1977

Here's a very funny MADHOUSE story from 1977, possibly written by George Gladir and maybe drawn by Stan Goldberg. Darn Archie for their annoying lack of credits when everyone drew in a "house style."

The Wonderland of Oz-Walt Spouse-1940

These pages are from 1940 but reprint the daily newspaper strip from 1933, reformatted with word balloons and now in color. Spouse adapted and drew a half dozen or so of the original Baum novels during the strip's brief run.
