This week, we give you crappy comics starring The Monkees, The Partridge Family and Bobby Sherman!
Here we see Charlton's favoured method for making comics about real people-- tracing their 8x10 glossies!
"HI I AM STANDING HERE! HI I AM RIGHT NEXT TO YOU!" Geez! I mean really now-- why not cut out the middleman and just make a fumetti out of their publicity photos?
As an interesting side note, Danny Bonaducci is STILL sneaking onto porn movie shoots.
Here we see Dell just cuts to the chase and uses a photo as their cover. They did that a lot, actually. Take a good look at what The Monkees look like, because...
...you won't get any idea from the interior art. Well, I guess it's safe to say they didn't use any photo reference at all, much less tracings, for this comic. For instance, I'm 99.99999% certain Michael Nesmith isn't an elf, except in certain "ElfQuest" fanzines.
Finally, we see Charlton learned something from Dell and used a photo for their cover of the Bobby Sherman comic. Apparently Bobby Sherman was on a TV show or something. Beats me who that other guy is.
YAAAAAGHHHHHH!!! As we can see, the interior once again relies heavily on the ol' 8x10 glossy, so much so that Bobby BURSTS FORTH from the page.
One can only imagine what a player Charlton comics was considered to be in Derby, Connecticu if they felt it unnecessary to bother with either a street, address number, or even a zip code for their mail. Either that or they really didn't want kids sending in their haiku.
