Go-Go Comics

DC may have had its "go-go checks" but Charlton--of all companies--had the actual hip GO-GO comic book! A bit of an odd combination of MAD-like humor comic and teenage fan magazine, GO-GO featured  pop culture lampoons of everything from TV's PEYTON PLACE to Marvel Super Heroes. A number of interesting creators had early work in GO-GO including Gary Friedrich, Bill Dubay, Denny O'Neil, Grass Green, Steve Skeates and Jon D'Agostino. Perhaps it's best remembered though for the art debut of Jim Aparo. GO-GO began in mid-'66 and lasted through most of '67, here are the covers of all 9 issues.
