Crazy Letters of the Silver Age - "Give Her a Sock in the Snoot!"

Yes, part of the fun of getting originals is finding out the fans of the sixties were almost as crazy and obsessive as us. Name has been removed by my awesome photoshop skills, but it was a girl's name. From Jimmy Olsen #69:

The story referred to in the response involves Jimmy finding a Viking girl who turns out to be a robot, natch, controlled by Jimmy's 3-person fan club who want to make Lucy jealous so Jimmy will stop being so pre-occupied by his crush on her. Hilarity and some smooching ensues.

I love it when you see "repeat" letters from the same person (usually complaining) in old comic letter columns.

I really wish letter columns would come back!!

I kind of wonder if some of those old letter writers are still around - wouldn't surprise me if they've got blogs now!
