The following story, "The Harder They Fool," comes from Little Archie No. 3, Summer 1957; and is a pretty fair slice of the kind of brilliant, tac-sharp humor and beooo-ti-ful pages Bob Bolling has been turning out for well over half a century.

No one drew Casper like Warren Kremer (Heck, no one could draw like Warren Kremer). As a kid, I used to stare at his splash panels, getting lost in the beautiful details (still do). He was also a great cover artist (as seen here), the equal of Carl Barks in that department.I really love this story about a sorcerer's wishing stone, which weaves a lesson into the fun so purely and simply - like only Harvey could do. This comes from The Friendly Ghost, Casper No. 68, April 1964.

Friend, Lysdexicuss, requested another round of Howie Post stories after my last outing. I'm only to happy to oblige. These two stories come from Hot Stuff, The Little Devil No. 57, December 1963.
Since I'm on a Harvey Comics kick, let's ride the wave with some Warren Kremer next time out!

Yesterday was a gloomy, drizzly day here in South Florida. Looking for a ray of sunshine, I naturallly went through my collection of Howie Post stories. This one, "The Disappearing Water," has a mad dash of science fiction thrown in for good measure. It comes from Spooky No. 93, August 1966.
