    Fearless Fosdick: The Hole Story (Vol. 2), by Al Capp.

    Cartoonist Al Capp loved to play with comic conventions. An enduring Fosdick trademark was the "Swiss cheese" holes that riddled his body when he was inevitably and repeatedly shot by villains. Fearless Fosdick's body on the cover of this volume is actually die-cut with holes, the gimmick that inspires the sub-title.

    This book collects five more complete adventures: "Fosdick and Hyde" (March 30 to May 4, 1956), "Ezio the Pincher" (March 5 to May 9,1957), "Robot Cop!" (January 23 to March 1, 1961), "Gooch Abducted!" (November 1 to December 13, 1964) and "Fosdick at Sixty-Five" (September 1 to October 13, 1961). In "Robot Cop!" Capp thought of a robot law enforcement officer running amuck in the city nearly 30 years before the popular and violent film Robocop.

    The daily struips have been reconfigured to fit the 8.5" x 11" soft cover format. 128 pages. Out of print.
