Beatnik Babe Kookie

Almost lost in our culteral history is the bongo-playing, expesso-sipping beatnik. If a man, he usually sported a Maynard Krebbs goatee, if a woman, she usualy showed her shapley gams in black tights.
   KOOKIE , by Bill Williams, ran for 2 issues in 1962, published by Dell.  I think it is likely tht this was not produced by Western, since their long association with Dell was ending at this time.
Here is one of the stories from issue #1, February 1962

Williams did another equally forgetable series for Dell at about the same time called "Dunc & Loo"

Another great Williams cover here.
