This "story" is so weird and inexplicable I just had to share it. I don't know who wrote or drew this (other than "by Jupiter"), and I don't know if there were more than two episodes with this character.

All I know is that this 2-page bit of weirdness was the only thing that jumped out at me from this whole comic, and got me asking all kinds of questions like: Did this book have an editor? It's just so much fun and loose and reads like phone doodles!

Nice cover, though!

PS...I found an earlier episode of Solar Plexus - Interplanetary Messenger in WEIRD Comics #1, and I include it below just to satisfy your curiosity. It doesn't appear to have anything to do with the haiku-like hallucination above, and I found it entirely unremarkable...except that it wallows in the pool of utter nonsense as well.

If anybody out there has any more info on who might've done this, please let me know. In the meantime, enjoy the ride!
