However, Ben discovers he's no better at those jobs than he is at selling lemonade.

    Title: "The Story of Airbiscuit"

    Story (out of 24 pages): 7 p.

    Writer: Nathan E. Stowe

    Penciller: Ethan "Meat" Jackson

    Letterer: J. Antwon Shea

    Colorist: Annette "Jo" Shaw

    Summary:

    While out, Jon and Angela come upon a junk-wagon horse being mistreated by its owner (Diamond Joe DeVito from "Schtick Shift"). Of course Angela's heart immediately goes out to the poor old, abused animal. It seems in its day the horse, Airbiscuit, was a champion thoroughbred, a racer at some of the top tracks, a Triple Crown Winner, voted American Horse of the Year, and victor in over 70% of its races. Despite Jon's objections, Angela purchases Airbiscuit on the spot. But can she turn that old bag of bones into a champ again, or will this be a case of a fool and her money soon parting?

    The title of the story refers to the 1949 film The Story of Seabiscuit, starring Shirley Temple and Margaret O'Hara, which was a somewhat romanticized biopic about the famous underdog racehorse.

    The horse's "secret weapon" was based on the 1937 Three Stooges film "Playing the Ponies", which had spicy pepperinos given to a horse before a race.

    Goofs and Nitpicks

        The quote marks in the first panel are incorrect. It should have had single quotes around the words "...Chicago model" and the close quotes following the words "...white on the outside".

    ________________________________________________

    There are three pages of filler in this issue:
    "Obtuse Chanteuse/Cutting Wit". Marcie's singing is critiqued; Mike Rotch has Old Lady Cashenbank in the chair.
    "Dr. Belch's Gag Bag/Con Airheads". A look at what your dog does behind your back; two bonehead convicts plan a jailbreak.
    "The Desert Foxhound". Buddy journeys across the burning sands.
          * This is the only time the Sweets are seen to have an above-ground swimming pool in their backyard.
          * In the second panel, part of Buddy's tongue is erroneously colored the same as the background.
