I have to admit, it was several years before I realized those were penguins.

I can imagine...in fact, that's all I can do for finding a GA book on the newsstand...lol

 

My earliest memory of seeing a newsstand comic is for Green Lantern #1. The evil puppet on the cover was very scary looking... :o My mom had given me 10 cents to buy a couple ice creams...so I didn't buy the comic, but the ice cream was good...

Knowing Brian, probably $14.00 and he might have "beat the guide" to get it for less.

Cool book. Back when the Penguin was humorous and the stories were very creative. So unlike the "dark" version of today.
