Herbie #11

One of the oddest comic books to come out of the 1960's was Herbie. Herbie Popnecker is about the most low key, coolest superhero ever created. He may look like a fat nothing, as his father calls him in his stories; but Superman would have a tough time fighting him. It is also strange how all the leaders of the world know who Herbie is, aliens and creatures know who Herbie is; but his parents just think he is nothing - an embarrassment to them. Hummm, is that what has made Herbie such a cult favorite?

Here is the opening splash page from the first story in issue # 11 along with the final few pages of the story. That's a lollipop in Herbie's mouth.
