Further Adventures Of Flashbulb Olsen






Olsen's at it again.   



Olsen goes around muttering something about "seatbelts vs. airbags" for the rest of the day, and he still won't admit to having peeked at this picture when he thought no one was looking.





Olsen goes around muttering something about "Some swell sweater" for the rest of the day, and then he still won't admit to having peeked at this picture when he thought no one was looking.





Olsen goes around mumbling about "Spanish" for the rest of the day, and then he still won't admit to having peeked at this picture when he thought no one was looking.





Olsen goes around in a daze for the rest of the day, muttering something about protruding and obtruding into the space of others on the elevator, and then he still won't admit to having peeked at this picture.





Olsen goes on and on about "The Robe", and he isn't talking about the movie of the same name.





Olsen goes around for the rest of the day muttering about what will happen if "the last button popped". He can't wait.



Olsen said this was a dirty picture, but a blonde washed his mouth out with soap for saying that, so he decided to go back to pretending he didn't look at these pictures.





"Give me a hand, will you, Olsen?"

"Hollywood Stunt Girl" - THREE STOOGES #1










This "Hollywood Stunt Girl" story was a backup feature in the first issue Three Stooges comic book.
Art by Joe Kubert.



 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
 



I don't like the way that story ended, it was all about revenge. But a lot of the old comics were all about action without really seeming to think about things like that.

THE THREE STOOGES #1








Another comic book from St. John, by the same guys that did WHACK, Norman Maurer and Joe Kubert. Norman Maurer married Moe Howard's daughter and was involved in the production of some of the Three Stooges' later movies.

Shemp Howard was the "third Stooge" at the time this comic book was published. He had been the third Stooge originally, but he was replaced by Curly early on, later replacing Curly in turn in the film series. Most of the Three Stooges comedies I've seen on television were the ones with Shemp. I don't understand why we are being told today that Curly is the third Stooge that everyone remembers.



 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 





 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 





 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 





 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

  
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

The girl looks like Bettie Page. 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 



This comic book would have come out a little before the 3-D issue of WHACK!, since it's advertising the 3-D Mighty Mouse comic, which was the first 3-D issue they did. And evidently the only one they did that made money.

"Sam Seetla" appears to have been modeled after actor John Barrymore. Another character modeled after John Barrymore was "Vitamin Flintheart" in DICK TRACY.
