Looks like he’s hanging out with Hitler Youth too. Not cool indeed.

I've always wondered why some people have such an irrational fear of clowns.

Now I know.  :o

 

It's not irrational. They are freaking disturbing to look at.

I am surprised, and yet somehow also not surprised...that it hasn't sold yet.

Future Monkee Mickey Dolenz cover is pretty cool apart from the clown.  Never watched the show but those clown feet are very disturbing.

Apparently this Dell is one of the rare 15 cent price variants!  :headbang:

Who knew?  Thanks to Jeffro for the education and links to posts from knowledgeable Dell collectors (which I am not).

"For an 18 month period (March 1957 to August 1958), every regular size Dell comic book had a 10 cent and a 15 cent variant. The 15 cent variants were sold in certain markets to test the feasibility of a price increase. These are rarer and much more challenging to collect than the highly touted Marvel cover variants of the 1970's." 

According to Michelle Nolan,

"As much as I loved Dell Comics, it was pretty much lost to me as a newsstand purchaser, when Dell went to 15¢ for some of its comics as an experiment in 1957. […]  My favorite Dell title, Uncle Scrooge, became 15¢ with #17 (May 57).  Or, at least, it did on the West Coast.  I am now told the West Coast was the primary scene of the experiment, and it lasted about a year.  My last 15¢ Uncle Scrooge from the 1950’s was #21(Mar-May 58).  Likewise, I have a mixture of 10¢ and 15¢ Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories, all purchased second-hand from the 1957-1958 period."
