HUMBUG and TRUMP Book Collections

Reasons to get a second job: to pay for the upcoming HUMBUG and TRUMP collections of great satire by Kurtzman, Jack Davis, Will Elder, Russ Heath, Arnie Roth, Wally Wood, Al Jaffee and others.
It was over a year ago when, by chance, the subject of these two aborted satire magazines from the 1960s, was brought up with Arnie Roth. He mentioned that Humbug was jointly owned by four of its contributors, including Mr. Roth, and that it took a bit of time, but Gary Groth put together a deal to get it into print. I'm very glad he did.
