A Mountain of Trash

"A Mountain of Trash" from Inferior Five #8 (DC, 1968) by E. Nelson Bridwell, Don Segal, Win Mortimer and Tex Blaisdell
From the pages of Showcase came some of Earth's greatest heroes... Of course I'm talking about the Flash, Green Lantern and the Atom, NOT about the Inferior Five. But don't let the somewhat obvious joke of their powers and personalities (the fat guy floats on air and the girl is a dumb blond and so on) fool you, these were pretty fun stories lampooning the likes of the Justice League, 60s spy shows, Tarzan and... Marvel characters actually appearing in a DC comic largely unchanged! Just enough of a classic Mad Comics sensibility to be of interest.
