"Sno' Foolin', W'ice Cracker"

I'm assuming that all of Mazie's Adventures with Stevie and Flat-Top were simply the Magazine Publisher's Inc. answer to Archie Comics. This of course doesn't make them any less post-worthy nearly 60 years later, so with Winter 2010/2011 just a few weeks away, here are a couple of "cool" teenage rival tug'o war tales full of silly snowball fights and imbecilic iceboating from the February 1954 issue of Flat-Top #2.

Nooo, that's not an Archie clone AT ALL! It's an Archie Alternate Universe!

Nice artwork on these stories, I have never heard of this comic but I may actually like it even better than Archie!

Even Dick Tracy villains had to go to high school, I guess. I like the end when Mumbles leaves his friend Flattop to die of exposure. Whatta card.

Haha, totally...

I really really like the stylized characters here too (especially Mazie herself and her great devilhorn hairdo!)
