Let's see; a Kurt SchaffenbergerMr. Myxpytlk and a Murphy AndersonSuperman...but who lettered it?Mike Tiefenbacher would know!I used to look at ads like this anddream. I was lucky to scrape twelvecents together to afford ONE DC comic. I looked at the list of titles and wondered how nice it would be to own all of them, or atleast a few of them!And the ads that featured the comiccovers drove me mad! What flights of fantasy and adventure lay beneath those tiny cover illos? So much intriguing material for a young, impoverished neo collector! But enthusiasm and ambition soondefeated poverty. I found ways ofearning comic book money, mostlyby digging through the couch cushions. Hey, if my dad chose tonap in his trousers, whatever slidout of his pockets became fair game!Then I started working for my parents' greenhouse business whenI was thirteen, and there was nostopping me! I paid my high schooltuition, bought my own books, paidfor own lunch, and after school itwas off to the supermarket to peruse the racks for shiny new comics which I could purchase inany quantity with my shiny new money!
