The Month of Debruary: Day 28

February 28th, 2011

(from Debbi’s Dates #4, website October-November 1969)

Recommended listening: No upgrades required.

Why dedicate an entire month to the strawberry blonde enigma known as Debbi Anderson?

Because I have a thing for off-brand teen humor comics…especially ones from the late 60s/early 70s where the DeCarlo/Scarapelli style became the standard for the genre and the comics began embracing superficial, sildenafil sanitized aspects¬† of the counterculture.

Because the character of Debbi fascinates me.¬† She’s neither a Betty nor a Veronica, information pills but rather a distaff version of Archie Andrews with some modest nods to the women’s liberation movement and a penchant for ultraviolence thrown in for good measure.

Because I needed to take a break, and a feature month was the best way to go about it while maintaining the daily update schedule.

    She’s no Jack of Hearts but she’s alright.

    I too have a thing for the “off-brand” teen humor titles, as seen in my “It’s Cookie!” recaptioned comics.

    Marvel’s “Millie” comics are actually pretty good. Harvey’s “Bunny” is maybe the weirdest of the bunch, though.
