No column this week, I’m afraid. I’ve been struck down with the most hellacious cold I’ve had in years, and just haven’t been able to get to the keyboard. So instead, I’ll just leave you with this:
Bob Taylor’s cover for Sick #48! One of the many attempts to cash in on the success of Mad, Sick came from Golden Age comics great Joe Simon. It was not his finest hour. But the magazine did last for 20 years, so they must have been doing something right.
And that’s all I’ve got energy for this week. Now it’s back to bed.
