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.

You mean they copied the mind-switch story Spider-Man did a couple of years ago, only did it MUCH better and in much less time? ;\)

I got a LOT of Spidey fans mad at me when I pointed out that Superman, Bugs Bunny, Popeye, Gilligan's Island, Abbott & Costello, The 3 Stooges, and hundreds of other characters had been doing the mind-switch story for DECADES. ;\)

I wonder if any of them have forgiven me yet? ;\)
