As the title suggests, this is something a little bit different (though not the “something different” I promised a few posts ago… That’s a whole other project that I’m very slowly working on) for this site.
I suppose some background would be good. I found this years and years ago at my grandmother’s house while I was looking through some of my dad’s old comics. I’m not sure what comic this came from, or how old it is exactly… When I tried to remember it semi-recently, I always thought it was Casper in this story, which it isn’t, obviously, but looking the information for this character up online reveals that this could have been in the Casper comic, or one of four comics starring this character himself, and it seems it could have been published anywhere from 1953-1980, though I would guess somewhere in the late 60s or 70s.
Anyway, whatever comic it was in, I took it home and kept it for a while, then at some point got rid of it, but tore out these pages and kept them in a variety of hiding places, until finally finding one that even I quickly forgot about, as for quite a while now, I’d forgotten about saving them and just assumed it was gone with the rest of the comic, until tonight when I stumbled across them while looking for something else.
I’ve never seen this scanned, or even mentioned, on any AB/DL site, so I figured I might as well put it up. It may be out there somewhere – when looking for mentions of it, I usually looked under Casper, after all – but it would be pretty neat if I was the first. But enough with the explanation – here is Spooky, the Tuff Little Ghost in BOOtiful Baby!
