Indexer Notes

Story: Shane (Frankenstein) O'Shea /
Art: Ogden (Dracula) Whitney.
Herbie sends Cleopatra back to her time by placing a lollipop-sucking dummy of her beloved in the time-traveling grandfather clock. Herbie never uses that clock again, but does travel in time with another clock (#21) and with a super special time lollipop that makes a propeller "sprong" out of his head (#23). The story ends with Dad winking at Herbie, which may be the most positive father-son gesture in the series.
