Random Reads: "Over the High Side" by Shoberg, Weiss, and Reese

While rummaging through the Files of the Far-Out, Ol' Groove ran across this example of creepy-cool cycling from House of Mystery #205 (June 1972). "Over the High Side" was written by Lore Shoberg, who wrote around a couple'a dozen mystery tales for DC during the Groovy Age and sports art by the right-on but rarely seen team of Alan Weiss and Ralph Reese. It's a fun and freaky fable that you can only find in the Groovy Age, baby, and it's here just for you!

  1. I've got the original comic this appeared in... my mom bought it for me while we were on a family vacation that year. What great memories!
