In the 1950s, when Basil Wolverton wasn't drawing exaggeratedly gonky people for Mad or horrifying apocalyptic scenarios for the Christian Plain Truth magazine, he wrote and drew a number of kooky and fun stories, full of his signature alliteration and rhyme, for younger readers. Among his recurring characters was the space hero Jumpin' Jupiter. Here's a representative story from Key Publications' Weird Tales of the Future (November 1952), which is in the public domain (scans courtesy of Comic Book Plus).

One see's where Kurt Busiek gets his dialogue for the Bouncing Beatnik (and elements of the 1960's Teen Titans lingo) with a touch of Dr Seuss thrown in...

Wolverton was always heavy on alliteration and chicken fat.
