When I learned that the fabled exploits of Herbie Popnecker were finally going to be reprinted, I rushed to place my order for the first two volumes, and was not dissatisfied.

But somehow, I neglected to order the concluding third volume for almost a year. It arrived this week, bringing more pure comics weirdness. It's hard to convey the essence of Herbie, but just check out the sloppy scan below.

Herbie goes time-traveling to the era of the Pilgrims and meets--Beatnik Indians!

Think of the brain that could conceive of Beatnik Indians--and stand in awe! (Click image to enlarge.)

Can I sit in awe, instead? I have a bum knee and can't stand for long periods 😉

Thanks for this, Paul! I am always on the lookout for great cartoons (oh how I miss Far Side, Bloom County, Calvin and Hobbes...) At least we still have Pearls Before Swine for our daily fix.
