Hillman Publications was one of the smaller publishers of its day, dabbling in comics among other ventures. It's best known now for its aviation comics, and especially Airboy.

But this post features a truly obscure publication, "Joe College Comics". It's teenage romantic comedy hijinks in the tradition of Archie, but with slightly older protagonists.

Fair warning and trigger warning: The cover story heavily relies on ethnic stereotypes of Native Americans outdated even in the 1950s, and some subversions of same for comedy. Because of that, I am placing the cover under the cut as well. This story is a product of its time and uses slang and loaded words that are not acceptable by today's standards. It's also kind of sexist.

Joe College Comics, Winter 1950, is in the public domain, so the following story may be brought to you in its entirety.





Note the early Comics Code marker.












And it turns out to be a "Just So" story.



Next time I'll be posting something a little more in line with what you've come to expect from me.
