Gomer Pyle-Warren Tufts-1966

Unlike many 1960s TV adaptations that slavishly relied on lightboxing publicity stills for artwork, this one has the great serious cartoonist Warren Tufts doing some pretty unserious cartooning...and the strip works all the better for it! Still only lasted three issues, though.

Another underrated Gold Key discovery--I'll have to seek these out, too.

This story seems to be partially based- or at least inspired by - an early first season episode, "Survival of the Fattest".
