Here's a bit of irrelevant nitpicking. I always thought that "safari" is pronounced (in English, at least) "suh-FAW-ree." And Cary, as in Cary Grant, is pronounced "CARE-ee." And comic book character names like "Safari Cary" are supposed to rhyme.

So...did the writer/editor/whoever pronounce "safari" as "suh-FAIR-ee" to rhyme with Cary? Or did he pronounce "Cary" as "CAHR-ee" to rhyme with safari? Or did he just let them not rhyme, which makes one wonder why not use alliteration instead and call him Safari Simpson or Safari Sam or something?

I notice a preoccupation with Fox Comics. There is indeed a charming sleaziness about everything they did. I don't think they intended their comics to be read by children. Must have been quite a few men 18+ surreptitiously buying Foxes. Still are!
