Some of my favorite comic book memories of growing up in the 1960s are of characters I long thought I imagined because most traces of them have been erased from existence:

• Diaper Man

• Secret Squirrel

• Forbush Man

• Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse

• And that guy who shouted “SPLIT” just before various body parts of his broke apart to punch out the bad guys!

MICHAEL EURY podcast excerpt: “I’m just fascinated with the past. As our culture keeps moving forward, it’s easy to forget, and I didn’t want this goofy period of the 1960s to be forgotten. A few people who have read the book said, ‘Oh, so there WAS a Diaper Man!'”

Michael Eury, a former editor at DC Comics and long-time editor of Back Issue! magazine, apparently saw what I saw.

What a relief!

In his new book, Hero-A-Go-Go: Campy Comic Books, Crimefighters, & Culture of the Swinging Sixties, Eury brings all these wacky characters and many, many more in a celebration of a simpler time, when Ralph Bakshi was better known for Cuckoo Man than Fritz the Cat.
