As I have mentioned before, Tales Calculated to Drive You Bats is one of my all time favorite comic series. This Archie title didn't last long, only seven issues from Nov. 1961 - Nov. 1962. The comic book hit me at the right time to set my love for funny monsters on track. The artwork by Orlando Busino from the first few books in this series has always been a special inspiration for me. Over at OddBall Comics, Scott Shaw has written about Busino several times. Here, from issue #4,is an early version of the story of a mad scientist's assistant.
