”The very first appearance of SAGEBRUSH, the wild western strip created by JOHN SEVERIN from #78, August 1969.
When America landed on the moon in July 1969, everyone had moon madness. From #81, November 1969”
Lots of to-do in the 1960's about fashion designer Rudi Gernreich.
”HUDD & DINI first appeared in CRACKED #76. They were created by VIC MARTIN and included here is an early appearance from #82, January 1970.
“HAWK looks like the touchy subject of comic book heroes and their avoidance of the Vietnam issue of the 70's. From #105, November 1972.”
There already was a feature like that by Al Jaffee in Mad and a series by Steve Ditko for DC Comics.
