I loved it more way back when. But it's still good for the occasional chuckle.
Trivia question: Name the only EC Comics artist to be actually sanctioned by the Comics Code Authority, and why he was sanctioned.

I haven't read it since I was a kid. Loved the Spy's. I did see this cover which is funny because that's probably what Drumpf looked like as a kid.

I remember that, too! And, 'The Duke:' "The sky is blue, the grass is green, get off your butt and join the Marines."
