When I was a car-less teenager, all the kids used to hitchhike to get to the mall, beach, movies, etc.
Even I went along with it once or twice, reluctantly - as a sort of "Boo Boo to a Yogi-like friend"!
But that was long before I began to fight for better bus service in my county, and things were like this...
Versus the far better system we have now.
We lived more dangerously back in the early 1970s, and I'm glad to see that the practice has all but vanished in the decades since.
But hitchhiking was in full force among Long Island's youth when BUGS BUNNY #125 (Gold Key Comics, Cover Date: September, 1969) was released!

Gee, this is the second consecutive post that I've titled with a question! I've really gotta get back into my old groove of "Comic Box Adventuring" and "Mirth Separation"!
But, to answer that "second consecutive titular question", I must remind you just how much I enjoy reserving Saturday afternoons for reading comic books - and THIS POST will do that nicely!
I don't get to do that as much as I'd like to this days... That old "Horrifically Busy" thing, you know.
But this weekend (Yes, Saturday AND a bonus Sunday - almost wall to wall) reviewing, researching... and, most important of all - READING many Carl Barks stories of early 1960s vintage in order to prepare story notes for a future Fantagraphics volume. ...Talk about combining "business with pleasure"!

That's a good question... Where HAVE I been?
Here, there, perhaps nowhere... eating honey with a bear...
So, for the first time in I-Forget-How-Many-Years, there will be a New York Comic Con without me! Maybe next year...
