Binky's Buddies / Scooter - 1970

sg
I found this ad in an old issue of The Phantom Stranger. I wonder--was there any crossover audience between these books and PS?

Oh, and I guess one could suggest the Binky cover has some sort of sexual subtext. But as Sigmund Freud once said: "A water hose joke is sometimes just a water hose joke."

Y'know, Rob - I betcha there was...?

There was a very healthy, broadminded, "Wholistic Theory of Comics" among a lot of us readers back then:

JLA/JSA crossover in the Summer; the Archies that you found at the supermarket whenever; Charlton's spooky stuff, especially around Halloween; and maybe a Dennis Christmas special to round the year out (with an occasional Classics Illustrated for cultcha.)

Ya got a balanced meal, back when it wasn't all (gloomy) Men in Tights.

Great week,
