Enter Jay Ward. His cartoons are funny to everyone. Kids laugh at them. Grownups laugh at them. He was exceptional at slipping in-jokes past the censors. Among the creations of his studio were, of course, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Crusader Rabbit, Dudley Do Right, George of the Jungle, Tom Slick, Super Chicken, and (my favorite) Roger Ramjet.
I picked up this comic on a whim. I'd never seen one--or had seen it so long ago that I'd forgotten about it. Mainly, I was curious if the writing was going to be similar to that of the cartoon. There must have been some input from Jay Ward Productions, because the stories are indeed quite funny. The kind of thing I'd expect to have seen and heard in a Jay Ward cartoon.
It's in pretty good condition, and I'm glad I picked it up. I only paid a few dollars for it. Into the collection it goes.
