Sugar & Spike

    (DC, 1956-1971, 2002)
™ and ©1961 DC Comics, Inc.

At a time when most comics were derivative and formulaic, Sheldon Mayer’s wildly fun, charming, and hilarious Sugar and Spike stood out as a beacon of creative inspiration for over 15 years. Sugar Plumm and Cecil “Spike” Wilson are two tiny toddlers, not yet able to speak recognizable English, but fluent in the universal language of baby talk. Their efforts to puzzle out the world of grown-ups and their matter-of-fact delight in kiddie play are an inexhaustible source of gut-splitting laughs and magical moments for readers of all ages.

Issues of Sugar and Spike were packed with features ranging from 16-pagers to three-panel gag strips, plus activities, pages printed in black-and-white for kids to color or write their own dialogue, cut-out dolls, and the letter page, “We Got Letters!” (“They sound better than they taste,” remarked Spike). Meyer’s delightful series later became a cult classic among collectors.
