Another tale of Fearless Fosdick, the underpaid and over shot-up police officer. Fosdick was created by Al Capp for his Li'l Abner comic strip, and was a satire of Dick Tracy. He became popular enough that he often starred in his comic strip within a comic strip, read by his biggest fan, Li'l Abner.
The book, FEARLESS FOSDICK...HIS LIFE AND DEATHS, is a compilation of stories, reformatted from newspaper comic strips into comic book pages, and sold as a trade paperback book in 1956. That way the publisher could sell a black and white "comic book" in a more deluxe format for $1.00 instead of the usual comic book price of 10¢. This is story number two from the book.
David Miller gets credit for providing sharp photocopies, which I scanned. Thanks, Dave!
