Trump Reading Room MYSTERY IN SPACE "The Following Program is Pre-Recorded"

In this era of podcasts, which will be on the internet as long as the servers storing them operate...,
...such a tale as this might seem passe...except for the ending!
Appearing in the final issue (#117) of DC's Mystery in Space in 1981, and written by B S Watson, penciled by Don Newton, and inked by Steve Mitchell, the story takes the "last man on Earth" scenario to an unbelievably-narcissistic level!
I mean, he's the last person alive and all he can think of doing is recording and transmitting himself?
As to why it's a "Trump Reading Room" and not "Reading Room", tale?
Because we can see the world ending up  like this due to the Cheeto Benito's actions, and one of his followers surviving to become the self-obsessed fool we see here!

The Swinging Seventies Black Super-Hero You NEVER Heard of...ACE OF SPADES!

In 1971, two years before The Black Panther received his own series...
...a Black Super-Hero hit the newsstands of America for a two-issue run almost nobody remembers!
Who is he?
Where did he come from?
And why don't even the most obsessive comics fans remember him?
These, and other equally-valid questions are now answered at...

Friday Fun JETTA OF THE 21st CENTURY "Celestial Celebrity"

It's 2018, and high schools still have yearbooks....
...just as this tale of this era from Standard's Jetta of the 21st Century #7 (1953) projected!
It's amazing how little "teen humor" has changed in the 65 years since this tale was published!
With just a little modification, this could easily be a current Archie tale with Dilton Dooley's gizmos getting out of control!
Written and penciled by the legendary Dan DeCarlo, inked by Fred Eng.

BTW, we'd like to extend our thanks to the amazing Kracalactaka, heroic contributor to both the Digital Comic Museum and ComicBookPlus, for these Jetta scans and the ones from last week!
It's people like him who assure that comic book art will be appreciated for generations to come!

Reading Room EVERY DAY IS A HOLLY DAY "Washington's Birthday"

Before they combined Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays into a "floating" holiday...
...Washington's Birthday was celebrated each year on this date!
Why is this comic entitled "Every Day is a Holly Day" instead of "Every Day is a Holiday"?
Because it was given away to kids by grocers who sold Holly Sugar!
Illustrated by John Rosenberger, it's a unique pamphlet covering a number of American holidays, including both Lincoln and Washington's Birthdays (before they were combined into "Presidents' Day"), Mothers' Day (though not Fathers' Day), Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and a couple of holidays we've largely abandoned...Pan-American Day and American Indian Day!
We'll be presenting the other chapters on the dates they fall upon.
Watch for them!

Reading Room OUTER SPACE "Greater Jovians"

We ran a Steve Ditko story about Jovians a couple of weeks ago...
...now here's another one from the same issue of the same comic, but with totally-different Jovians!
Why did the editor run the two stories one-after-another in the same issue?
Why didn't he space them out a couple of issues apart?
We'll never know the answer!
