216. Comic With Poppin’ Fresh, Speedy Alka Seltzer, and Michelin Man

April 13, 2010

Q: Do you know the issue that had a 2 page comic featuring Poppin’ Fresh, Speedy Alkaseltzer, and perhaps The Michelin Man on a crazy road trip? Speedy was drinking a bottle of beer through his eye-hole. It was from the mid-70s. Thanx!

A: That was called “Heading for Trouble” and appeared in the National Lampoon Encyclopedia of Humor (1973). It’s listed as “P.S.A.” in the contents page (under “P”). It was written by Brian McConnachie and illustrated by Francis Hollidge.
