The Boys from Derby: "If You Love Me, Beep Twice!" by Gill and Boyette

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Way back in Space Adventures #7 (February 1969), writer Joe Gill and artist Pat Boyette created a sci-fi shocker called "If You Love Me, Beep Twice!" It's reminiscent of the Henry (Goliath) Pym/Ultron school of nice guy builds a robot (or computer, as they're wont to call it in this story) that can think on its own--so naturally it turns out to be a stinker! Nothing groundbreaking, but it is a fun li'l diversion--and that's what it's all about today, right?


  1. Cool - Boyette's in great form here...

  2. With a name like Email, the dude's bound to spend way too much time with his computer!

  3. This was pretty much my FIRST comic.. I remember my Dad buying this, a Hulk and a Captain America back in '69 when I was sick in bed.

    It started my entire comic collecting career..!!
