Here's the latest issue of "The Harveyville Fun Times!" #73. Only two more issues to go before I pack it in for good. It's been a good run of 20 years, but with the Internet and declining circulation, it's not worth for me to publish anymore. The invitation is still out there for someone else to take over with #76 and I will help them out to ease the transition. Please let me know...
A couple of years ago, I decided to pursue obtaining buttons and other souvenirs advertised in old comic books, mostly pre-1980. What I found out was, most of these souvenirs either were made in very small quantities or don't even exist at all. Here is my latest acquisition, the "Tippy Teen P.A.L. Club" button as advertised in the pages of "Tippy Teen" back in the 1960s. An obvious Archie rip-off, the artist on this button is most likely to be Samm Schwartz who also did a lengthy run on "Jughead" for Archie.
I'm still looking for the elusive "Bunny Ball Fan Club" button from the pages of Harvey's "Bunny". Let me know if you have one or have seen one.
