Ringer Comics: Animated Hijinks to Comic-book Capers

Ringer Comics logo - Curio & Co.

Whether you grew up watching Spaceman Jax and the Galactic Adventures or the Sneekey Twins Mystery Club, Ringer comics had a knack for taking our favorite shows and turning them into our favorite comics. Although Ringer featured several original titles (including the popular Doctor Remarkable and Space Station Europa), the bulk of their output was licensed properties based on popular TV series of the day, and especially comics based on p.u.d. Film animated properties.

In fact, artists for some of the comics based on animated shows just lifted the stories from the episodes outright, especially for the first few issues. Apparently, Bill Pendergast at p.u.d. Film liked to review everything personally and he was apt to request lots of changes until it fit expectations. Artists found that the best way to get Pendergast off their case was to simply adapt the TV plots to the comics for the first few issues, so there would be nothing for Pendergast to complain of - story-wise at least.
