Hey, man, dig this comic, MOD SQUAD #8 from 1971. Here are THREE CRAZY COOL KIDS, RIGHT OFF THE HIT TV SHOW, man! Two white kids who look like your average Woodstock, guitar-strummin', pot-smokin', acid-droppin' hippie kids, and one angry-lookin' black dude with an afro. Only, get this, man...they're REALLY COPS! UNDERCOVER COPS! How cool is that? The white kids don't smoke dope, THEY BUST DOPE DEALERS! The black guy isn't into black power salutes or hasslin' the pigs, he's into helpin' by BUSTIN' DIRTY COPS!
Linc, Julie and Pete, a little uptight, but OUTTASITE AND ALL RIGHT! I get some major good vibes from this trio, man. I'm gonna go put on the headphones, listen to some Jefferson Airplane and Janis, and dig this FAR-OUT COMIC, MAN!
