Comment: Hoo hah! Don't miss this one! Nice Schomburg pinup girl cover but there's even better inside! The 9-page feature Kathy is drawn by Ralph Mayo -- and inked by Frank Frazetta! But there's even better to come! The 7-page feature Looie Lazybones is all Frazetta! (& check out page 3, carved in tree: "FRITZ LOVES CAROL". I guess this is from before Ellie. <grin>) Princess Pantha by Artie Saaf (later DC romance artist etc.) isn't bad either. Bob
