Plop!, usually subtitled The Magazine of Weird Humor!, was a 1970s DC anthology comic focusing on just that: wacky stories and gag pages with a horror or dark fantasy slant, hosted by Cain, Abel and Eve from three of DC's other horror/thriller titles. Here, from the first issue (Sept-Oct 1973), is "The Gourmet," by Steve Skeates and Bernie Wrightson.

A ribbit-ing tale )

By request, the Vigilante story from Adventure Comics #417, 3 1/3 pages of 10.

This is the Golden Age Vigilante, but a Silver Age edging into Bronze Age story--his first appearance since being reintroduced in JLA #78-79 with the other members of the Seven Soldiers of Victory.

This is not shaping up to be one of his better days. )

If there's interest, there's two more stories in this issue, a Supergirl tale with gender!fail, and DC's first attempt at the magical girl subgenre. Anyone want to see either of those?
