(Great pun!  I grew up reading Marvel Comics.  Also DC and Dell and Gold Key and Archie comics.  I loved the old Tarzan comics, and also the World War II comics, like “Sgt. Rock” and “Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos”.  It took me a little while to get into the superheroes, but my first and favorite of those was always “Captain America”.  Then “The Avengers”.  I wasn’t so big on “The Fantastic Four” or “Spider Man” until my later teens.  I still have a box of comics in the garage somewhere.  I hope they’re still okay.

No new clue words today.  We’ve definitely seen “vacho” before, but the other jumbles appear to be new.  It took me a few looks before I saw “salmon”.  Fantastic twelve letter answer letter layout.  Nothing given away. 

Fun cartoon of some early ’60s kids.  Great job on the clothes and haircuts.  I don’t remember little girls reading comic books much back then.  They usually pooh-poohed them, and only read real books.  And, I think most comic books were geared more for boys back then.  Times have changed though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR, I loved reading the Archie, and Casper the Friendly Ghost comic books when I was little……..and you’re right, it was slim pickings for girls who liked comic books. My brother and I would read anything, even cereal boxes at breakfast. Going to buy a comic book was a real treat- we’d go to the newspaper/tobacco shop in our little town to buy two each, and we’d be on cloud 9!…. I truly hope your comics in your garage are a-ok! This was a super Jumble today, kudos Jeff and David! ( I’ve been way behind on all things Jumble,and UR…hoping to have my head above water soon…hope everyone’s doing exceedingly well…take care all! )

    I too had a pile of comics when I was a kid. Alas, most of them are gone. BUT! I have a small pile of Sgt Fury comics next to my desk here, plus a small box of assorted DC comics in the basement. The last time I saw them the box was sitting on a bar stool, so I’d think they won’t get wet if some water gets onto the basement floor. 😀

    I loved the assortment of characters in the Sgt Fury comics! A real rogue’s gallery. I wouldn’t be surprised if the comic books didn’t inspire “The Dirty Dozen”. — YUR

    I loved my comics when I was growing up. I got to buy one on Friday’s when we’d go to the grocery with daddy!

Hoping you’re starting to be on the upswing, with one last day of meds .And bravo for being caught up, I’m still in the Jumble catch-up trenches, ha. Healing Hugs and sunshine from Indy!
