#3 - Top 12 Favorite Comics Book Short Stories

The Best of All Possible Worlds [Case 634] - The Many Ghost of Doctor Graves #5 (January, 1968)
Steve Skeates and Jim Aparo - 8 pages

Over the years, I've written countless posts about this brilliant story by the fantastic team of Aparo and Skeates. It goes meta long before it became fashionable, and I can only imagine that Grant Morrison must have read it as a child. Charlie Droople and his girlfriend Dorothy find themselves trapped within a comic book story. The thing is, one of them isn't all that bothered by the predicament. I'll let you guess which one. It's funny, mindbending and utterly charming.
