By the 10's: Casper's Ghostland!

This should be another done-in-one posting... Casper's Ghostland was one of several spin-off titles from the main Casper comic... I'm not sure what the difference was supposed to be, really, other than it was a giant-size book with all of the Casper supporting cast featured!

Here's issue 10's cover!

Here's issue 20... I suppose ghosts could use clouds to make a "snowman," couldn't they? Especially with Wendy the Witch around to help.

Issue 50... once again, the inanimate is afraid of Casper!

I wonder how Casper got the Ghostly Trio to agree to a race, given that they usually worked at odds against him, if I recall correctly? This is issue 60's cover.

How did I miss issue 90's cover when I was collecting sports comics covers? That wraps up this installment... things will heat up next time around, with Devil Kids!

Cool Stuff: Original Comic Art!

We start off this installment with page 42 from Marvel Preview #12, by Herb Trimpe - I'm guessing this is the magazine version of the title?

The same theory applies to page 14 from issue 13, by Klaus Janson!

Not sure why so many Hulk ones came up for sale at once... Anyway, you can probably see why the series didn't continue very long!
