| 1966 El Dorado The paper for this series was totally plated in chrome.
Synopsis: A young lad gets his first job flipping hamburgers at “Cousin Vinnie’s.” He saves all the money he has earned there plus the money from snow shoveling jobs plus that cash he has earned from mowing Widow Scarinzi’s lawn. He has enough to purchase his first car; a 14 year old Cadillac El Dorado. He finds $130,000,000 in cash in the trunk. He stops working for a living and therefore the comic book series is terminated prematurely (along with several ‘associates’.
| 1967 The War Wagon Very collectable series
Synopsis: A gang of Greek carpenters build a really big horse. They put candy and nuts inside of it and leave it outside of Troy, NY. They ring the doorbell and run away.

Synopsis: A young fashion model hits on a great idea; making green colored berets for Irishmen visiting Paris. He consigns the first 2,347 of them to a souvenir shop on the left bank. James Joyce purchases one and they become the fad of the decade. All 2,346 remaining berets sell out in the first week.
