The Adventures of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis is the title of a celebrity comics comic book published by DC Comics featuring the popular team of comedians Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. The series ran for 40 issues from 1952 through 1957,[1] at which time the title was renamed because of the real life breakup of the team. The title was continued as The Adventures of Jerry Lewis thereafter for issues #41-124.[2] The new series featured the comedian Jerry Lewis in a variety of humorous situations. Infrequent guest stars included Batman,[3] Bob Hope, Lex Luthor, Superman,[4] the Flash.[5] and Wonder Woman,[6] Notable artists who worked on the series include Bob Oksner and Neal Adams.[7]

[In July–August 1967], The Adventures of Jerry Lewis #101 perfectly illustrated how Adams was equally adept at delivering the art of laughter. In his first full-length story for DC, he provided writer Arnold Drake's space odyssey 'Jerry the Asto-Nut' with a photo-realistic flare not seen in comics.
