WOMAN: I refuse to brag! I let my face do it for me!

Pencils: Charles Nicholas Color: Allen Freeman


  1. “So much for his claims about being a vampire!”

    “Why do I keep hearing this little voice saying ‘if you’d like to stalk an ex-boyfriend, please deposit twenty five cents for the first five minutes…’?”

    Marie could never remember her own phone number. And she felt awkward always going into Men’s Rooms to read it off the wall. Then one day, her best friend told her about an amazing new item she saw in the dumb@$$ section of the Sears catalogue.

    Dial Marie…FOR MURDER!!!!

    “Wait…what’s he doing wearing nothing but leather chaps and drinking from the same strawberry malted as that Hell’s Angel biker?”

    • You’ve outdone yourself Jam. These are great!!

  2. Okay. Just why does the compact look like a phone dial in the original art???

  3. John:
    That explains it!
    Wouldn’t of recognized that as a phone number nowadays, but they did the same thing in “The Adventure of Auld Lang Syne”, during the lone season of Ellery Queen with Jim Hutton.
