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, 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. The new series featured the comedian Jerry Lewis in a variety of humorous situations. Infrequent guest stars included Batman, Bob Hope, Lex Luthor, Superman, the Flash. and Wonder Woman, Notable artists who worked on the series include Bob Oksner and Neal Adams.
In 2007, Bob Oksner stated that he had had a greater role in writing the comic than previously acknowledged, stating that the comic's editor, Larry Nadle, had persuaded him to allow his writing credit (and thus payment) to be transferred to "another cartoonist" who Nadle described as being in debt to DC; in reality, Nadle was keeping the money, and when this was discovered after his death in 1963, Oksner was nearly fired.

[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.CS1 maint: extra text: authors list (link)
