Book Description

April 28 2009 Herbie Archives (Book 3)
Here's Herbie! Dark Horse Books presents the final volume in its well-received archival series reprinting the wild, wacky adventures of Herbie Popnecker, who may look like a plump lump of a kid but who possesses extraordinary abilities along with an amazing collection of supernatural lollipops! Love-starved ladies, evil governments, monsters from the depths of the sea — nothing can stop him! This surreal, kooky, tongue-in-cheek comic series from the 1960s has been an all-ages cult favorite for decades. Past, present, and future — Herbie is amazing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a few laugh April 19 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have heard about these comics and wanted to know why it was reknown as a silver age classics. It is pretty much a recurring joke but it is well done. I did enjoy them and had a few good chuckles. You have to be in a silly mood to read these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farewell, Fat Fury May 8 2009
By Christopher Barat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Dark Horse wraps up the brief, yet memorable, career of Richard Hughes' and Ogden Whitney's obese, bizarre brainchild with this volume, which reprints stories from ACG's HERBIE #15-#23 (February 1966-February 1967). This period was the heyday of high-camp superheroics, exemplified by the Batman TV series. In the use of such outre villains as The Question Mark (a mechanically inclined fellow dressed in medieval garb who appears to suffer from a severe curvature of the spine) and Noodle Man (shaped like... well, you guess), we can see Hughes attempting to ride the wave as best he can. The problem is that the stories in which Herbie donned long underwear and took on the guise of the crime-fighting "Fat Fury" were actually the least interesting and most "conventional" of the HERBIE stories. Herbie's strange powers don't NEED superheroic window dressing, and, since everyone from historical figures to barnyard animals seems to know Herbie on sight anyway, what good will a mere toilet plunger and mask do to hide Herbie's I.D.? About the only really outrageous "Fat Fury" escapade is the mock spy story "Don't Mess Around with the Fat Fury!", in which Herbie matches what wits he has with a two-headed, extremely stereotyped Red Chinese agent named Foo Manchoo. Part of the "outrage" (at least for some people) may lie in the fact that Herbie ends up helping the troops in Vietnam.

The non-"FF" stories herein maintain the same level of lunacy that was seen in the comic's first 14 issues, though one can sense Hughes resting on his oars a bit in the increasing use of time-travel stories. (Oddly, even as Hughes pumps this pedal more and more, he throttles back somewhat on the use of contemporary pop-culture and political celebs that made the early issues of HERBIE so completely off-the-wall.) I'm not willing to hazard a guess on how long HERBIE would have lasted had ACG not gone out of business in early '67, but it's likely that its unique brand of craziness would have seemed a bit less funny as the 60s turned ever more sour and ugly. In that respect, if no other, HERBIE was probably fortunate to depart the scene when it did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Herbie Archives Volume 3 Rocks! Aug. 25 2013
By Morgan Painter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What a great way read these old classic comics. It's a lot cheaper than buying the originals. And the book doesn't fall apart reading them.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Collection of the Plump Lump Sept. 26 2014
By Tim Field - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you have read the first two volumes of the collected Herbie, you don't need me to convince you of the merits of the ACG series and Dark Horse's reprinting of the material. The writing and art continues to be inventive and wacky, actually more so as we see Herbie develop magic powers. There are the usual celebrity cameos, visits to historical character, talking animals, un-PC stereotypes, and Herbie's goofy father. Read, enjoy, and spread the news about this quirky and wonderful series.
