Green Lantern-Paul Reinman-1944

T-4 Days


This is a fun one because it's narrated by a cartoon version of its writer, Alfred Bester, later known as one of THE great science fiction writers! Sheldon Mayer cameos even!

Jerry Lewis-Bob Oksner-1964

T-6 Days.


Interesting to note that this was during the period when monsters as seen here were frowned on--if not outright banned--by the Comics Code. 

R.I.P. Jerry Lewis.

Melvin-1968

The final week begins. Countdown: T-7 days.


Yet another Archie rip-off? Maybe not. This 1968 backup from a DENNIS THE MENACE comic is clearly drawn by one of the DENNIS artists but not sure which one.
