Random Panels of Comic Book Weirdness # 56

From, a 1965 issue of THE ADVENTURES OF JERRY LEWIS, here's a panel that's not only amusing but a bit precognitive. Jerry has turned into a "witch," although clearly he has developed BAT-like attributes. A few months after this issue came out, the whole country would be going "batty" as Bat-mania took the US by storm! Also, the art here is by Bob Oksner who would later become one of the regular inkers for SUPERMAN. This may well have been the very first work he did on the character. Years later toward the end of the book's run, there would finally be an "official" crossover with SUPERMAN. As for this panel, throw in the fact that Supe's dialogue seems to indicate that Jerry should shop at a different grocery store and you have a splendidly oddball panel!
