Moe, Larry, Shemp and Bogus?
Today I bring you the final issue of the first run of Three Stooges comics from the early 1950s. These were put out by St John's comics and feature the trio that was featured in the shorts of that era; Moe, Larry and Shemp. However, Norman Maurer, the man responsible for the Stooge comics (as well as keeping the torch of the Stooges aflame for ages) felt that they needed an additional character. The result was a character named Bogus. The character is so named because he is a con man. He uses the Stooges as, well, stooges. But in true Stooge fashion, ends up a victim of circumstance. Check it out in The Three Stooges Comic Issue 7. Enjoy!
