Herbie and a planet called Bertram
Last week I showed you a straight-forward, adventure story by artist Ogden Whitney, this week something zany.
Looking back on the Herbie stories from Whitney and writer Richard E. Hughes from a vantage point of 45 years all I can say is, were these guys on something? This story, "Snedigger's Salad Oil," is from Forbidden Worlds #110, March-April 1963. It was the third published Herbie, with the same hallucinatory craziness we've come to associate with this character and his creative duo.
