Over the years I managed to amass a large collection of comic books. I’m currently whittling down my collection and I plan to sell a lot of them soon but I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites published before 1980 that might hold some interest for film and TV fans or pop culture addicts. This week I’ll be sharing pages from Bobby Sherman #2.

Bobby Sherman was a singer, songwriter, occasional actor and popular teen idol during the ’60s and early ’70s. During his popularity Sherman regularly appeared on Shindig! and the TV show Here Come The Brides (based on the musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers). He also made guest appearances on The Monkees and The Partridge Family. In 1971 he was asked to star in his own television series called Getting Together, which was about a song-writing team supposedly based the real-life songwriters Boyce and Hart. It was shown opposite of the hugely successful television show All in the Family and canceled after just 14 episodes. During that time Charlton Comics published a Bobby Sherman comic book that was based on his TV show. Here’s a few sample pages from it along with a video clip of Sherman performing one of his hit song . . .
