Cartoonist Scott Shaw!’s brilliant Oddball Comics column at Comic Book Resources hit its milestone 1000th post last week, so belated congratulations to Scott! This Monday he examines a classic oddball series. Here’s Scott in his own words:

It’s HERBIE As "THE FAT FURY" Week! From March 29 through April 2, 2004, cartoonist Scott Shaw! presents more of the all-time craziest HERBIE comic books ever published, including…

Check it out, folks! Scott’s column and the legion of comic book fans and pros who hang at his wild and wonderful Message Board in a very real way helped maintain my spirits during the 6 months I was unemployed! Thanks again, everyone, see ya (infrequently) on the boards!
