Bill's FAN Fascination #4

Yep, here we go again...


LITTLE DOT #133, (Harvey Comics, October, 1970) features this great Electric Fan-gag cover. Little Dot is covering her room with, well, DOTS. You think I'm obsessed? Here's an entire CHARACTER whose whole reason for being is that she really, really likes DOTS. That's it. She likes dots. Dots. Yep. Wow. Dots.

Little Dot also shares the comic with Little LOTTA, whose whole schtick is that she's... uh... well, she's really FAT. Yep. That's it. She's fat. Yup.

How come they never had a character who really liked FANS? You know, FANBOY BILLY, the kid who saves people with his cunning use of electric fans! It'd be pretty cool, if you ask me. Writing it should be a BREEZE!
