Dr. Acula

Sometimes THOIA has trouble keeping up with the actual REAL HORRORS of the world (see our current state of war and politics), and sometimes you just gotta fight back with something extra gruesome 'n brutal, or in today's case-- something overloaded with an extra goofy, heaping pile of cheeseball corn! So batten down your booby hatches and try to have yourself a good laugh today (please try to overlook the page scan quality as well as your world news) with this bit of EC-esque lunacy from the madcap March 1954 issue of Super Funnies #2. Yep, Superior Publishers put out some funny books as well, *GASP GAG!* and they actually weren't too bad!

Somebody couldn't think of an ending! A couple good gags here and there, but the art is quite rubbery and funny, and that makes up most of the humor. The play on vanity is a really good gag!

Tthe "rahhly am" bit: it shows how some jokes can age out -- thought I doubt these people were thinking beyond getting the issue out.

I do have to wonder about the cover. I suspect it was cut or clipped to fit the title, it seems really badly laid out, and I don't think it's the fault of the artist.

There were some one liners that would have fit in a 3 stooges short easily.

A fun way to start a Monday, thanks!

I liked the little commenting cat.

Someone found and posted on youtube the documentary The Horror Of It All-

I have to admit that, even though it's late and everybody here is trying to sleep, I still laughed right out loud at the "gorgeous red head" joke. I love stories of madcap surgery!
