    Released: February, 1967

Electric Comic Book is the second album by the American rock band the Blues Magoos, the follow-up to their successful debut release Psychedelic Lollipop. The psychedelic garage rock style is followed again on this release but without a high-charting single. A couple of tracks, "Intermission" and "That's All Folks" (a very brief, hard-rocking parody of the Looney Tunes end theme) showcase the band's bizarre sense of humor.

One single was released from Electric Comic Book, "Pipe Dream" b/w "There's a Chance We Can Make It". However, "Summer is the Man" and "Life is Just a Cher O'Bowlies" were released as B-sides of two singles from their next album, Basic Blues Magoos.
