Plop v1 #19, 1975 - The elderly, skin-diseased character on the cover is oddly less grotesque than usual for this DC series. Wally Wood also continues his alphabetized "Plopular Poetry" series, drawn in pseudo-elementary school style. The effort is minimal but meets expectations. Sergio Aragones sets the tone with two fine introductory pages and Frank Thorne, not known for humorous work, makes an interesting contribution. In one panel he inserts both President Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger in rather unflattering cameo appearances. Other artists in this issue include Bill Draut, Ted Robins, Dave Manak and Frank Thorne. This is number 6 of 11 Plop issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Plop or Wood issues.
