Created and written by American Comics Group editor Richard Hughes under one of his many pseudonyms, Herbie chronicled the adventures of the most unlikely of heroes, the rotund, everyman Herbie Popnecker. This most memorable title from ACG relied on sharp witted scripts and Ogden Whitney's understated art. Energized by his arsenal of magical lollipops, Herbie exhibited a wide range of powers in a variety of genres against an odd assortment of villains. Fifty years after its initial publication, this handsome collection of the first sixteen Herbie stories demonstrates that these tales still supply a simple, near perfect parody of superhero comics and its fandom while remaining uniquely its own entity.

Rick The few Herbies I have read are among some of the funniest comics ever.
