   Welcome to Pure Excitement Comics, the number one source for original Golden Age comic book reprints on the Web!

   I've got something a little different lined up for this 23rd issue of PEC -- an all-humor format! This issue features two great humorous superheroes and one returning favorite! And be sure to read all the way to the end of this page for a big CD-ROM announcement!
   First up this month, and returning as a result of reader demand, is Frankenstein, in a story from Prize Comics no. 59, published in May-June of 1946 by Feature Publications. Frankenstein appeared in Prize Comics nos. 7-54 and 56-68, as well as 33 issues of his own comic, Frankenstein Comics.
   Our second feature this month is Lt. Hercules in a story from Green Lama no. 7, published in January of 1946 by Spark Publications. Lt. Hercules appeared in Green Lama 1-8..
   In the final spot this issue is Stupid Manny, from Clue Comics no. 4 published in June of 1943 by Hillman Periodicals, Inc. The character appeared in Clue Comics 1-11.
   Hope you enjoy this issue. Also, the Target and the Targeteers CD-ROM is still available, along with a brand new CD-ROM focusing on the original Golden Age Fighting Yank! More information about the CDs, which cost a mere $10 each (shipped), can be found at this link!
