HOVERBOY'S WACKY HI-JINKS #64
"DELIRIUM FIVE "

August, 1968

Of the 13 HOVERBOY titles published by ARCHIE COMICS during the mid to late '60's, HOVERBOY'S WACKY HI-JINKS MAGAZINE was the longest running and most successful. Late in the series run, publishers fought to retain sales by teaming Hoverboy up with various popular personalities. Pictured here, issue #64 chronicles the first appearance of wristwatch icon, and eventual vice-president to Richard Nixon, SPIRO T. AGNEW. Hoverboy and Spiro go undercover to infiltrate a gang of "beatniks", and after smoking some bad weed, end up taking a wild "trip" to the freaky, whacked-out DELIRIUM 5!

Eagle-eyed viewers will note the use of the word "ZOOVY" on the cover. This was a word concocted by the publishers in an attempt to force a new word onto the public consciousness, and supplant the then popular "GROOVY". Despite the words continual use within the magazine, success was limited.
