Lamest comic ever?

Could this be the lamest comic book ever in the history of the entire universe?
Yes, yes it is. It brings "lameness" to new depths... I could barely read this thing. CRYIN' LION #1, Fall 1944 (Wise & Co.) features perhaps the sappiest character ever - a lion who is always... cryin'. Always. That's it. He's a cowardly, scaredy-cat, chicken-guts King of the Jungle and... well, there's really no "and".

That's it. Cryin' Lion. Waaaah.

Other uninspired characters who make an appearance in this waste of precious wartime natural resources are "Stony the Terrible" (a caveboy), "Prarie Dog" (a cowboy dog), "Cock Robinhood" (a rooster Robin Hood), and "Grease Monkey" (a grease monkey)... I swear the editor sat around with the writers and just came up with "pun names" and said "GO WITH IT!". Sometimes I think some of these old comics were just fronts to launder money through or were tax write-offs or something...

The only possible redeeming feature of this comic book was a short story about "Groucho Gremlin" only because it was so STRANGE.

I want my dime back.

I didn't think anyone read Spawn lately!

Actually it's funny you mentioned Spawn in this thread because it and Cryin' Lion share the same target audience!
