Thinking About My Jerry Lewis Comic Book

IMG_6205.jpg

In 1965 at the age of 15 I took a tour of the NBC Studios at Rockefeller Center in New York with my buddy Steve Erenberg.  While on the tour I noticed two large size Jerry Lewis Comic book covers leaning against a wall by some garbage bins. On the back it said "Dump".  Somehow Steve and I snuck away from the tour and went on our own to get permission to take the comics.  Somehow I  just walked into the right office and convinced the vice president of programing to let my friend and I have them.

 

We learned the comics were used a few nights early when Jerry Lewis guest hosted The Tonight Show. They were used to promote his new line of comics by DC Comics. 

I did get to bring the prop to The Sally Jessey Raphael television show in 1991 so Jerry could see it again.  I have to locate the 1965 The Tonight Show program Jerry used the comics on.

I have no written proof to back this up but I believe that the staff artist at DC comics that might have painted this large size comic book prop was the same man who did all the art for The Adventures of Jerry Lewis comics  and that is the legendary comic book artist Neal Adams

 

 Neal Adams is  recognized for helping to create some of the definitive modern imagery of the DC Comics characters Batman and Green Arrow; as the co-founder of the graphic design studio Continuity Associates; and as a creators-rights advocate who helped secure a pension and recognition for Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Adams was inducted into the Eisner Award's Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1998, and the Harvey Awards' Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999. Maybe one day I'll get a chance to meet Neil Adams and ask him.
