Complete Story: “Good Ole Joe”

Earlier today I posted my one-panel gag “Waiting for Sex” and included a full page of the original 1957 art. Since then I’ve had several readers ask me how the story turns out.

So, I decided to go for broke and post the entire story — which was probably written by Good Ole Joe Gill and definitely drawn by Good Ole Charles Nicholas and Good Ole Sal Trapani.

    • Thank you for the links, Diego. I vaguely knew that there had been more than one Charles Nicholas drawing comics and that one of them drew Blue Beetle. But, it seems there’s quite a controversy about who created the Blue Beetle—and who was the first Charles Nicholas!

      • Indeed, though it seems it was Wojtkoski the one who worked as a staff artist at Charlton –i certainly love his solid art style!

        • I agree. From the info on lambiek.net, Wojtkoski was definitely the Charlton artist—and probably the creator of the Blue Beetle.
