Last week, I read Abbott and Costello #2 from 1968. What a fun read! Our comic pair are featured in 4 stories - the boys meet a mind scientist (mind transference with espionage); Lou teams up with a private detective; Lou becomes a folk rock star; and Lou becomes a hero. The stories have lots of verbiage by Steve Skeates which really captured the funny dialogue characteristic of this comedy duo.The art by Henry Scarpelli is also very well done and the coloring is pleasing to the eye.There is a funny text page and back-up story called Far Out Fairy "Tails" drawn by Grass Green and featuring Tarkington T. Trassh, king of the garbage collectors.Best of all, there are no ads at all in the entire book.including the inside and outside covers . A book of laughs for only 12 cents in 1968 - what a bargain! I am looking forward to reading more issues in this series. Incidentally, I picked up this issue for only a $1 at one of my favorite comic book the Pittsburgh area.

I wish I had these. The last thing I need are more comic books littering up my back bedroom, but I still crave these vintage Charlton classics. They go for a pretty penny and I'd love to see a reprint volume, but the originals are awfully dandy as your review clearly showcases. Thanks -- you might've cost me money. \:\)
