When I was a kid, I thought Harvey comics were the worst (Except Sad Sack). Dottie Dot? Richie Rich? Little Lotta… Her thing was she had an eating disorder, and was morbidly obese. Nobody cared enough to get her the help she needed. These were some messed up kids in any comic universe.
And don’t get me started on that pathetic Casper. I always thought it would be great to be a ghost and scare the crap out of people. I seem to recall his backstory was that he was a kid who got run over by a car. So go haunt the Ford plant! Or the liquor store, as the case may be.
