Before Dean Martin was a Rat Pack star, he and his partner Jerry Lewis had the most successful comedy team of all time. Martin and Lewis started out breaking attendance records at nightclubs, where people would be lined up around the block to get in, and they went on to be a huge success on TV and in the movies.
Dean and Jerry’s popularity even inspired a comic book, issued from 1952 all the way till 1958. Many are for sale today as collectibles, with the one below available on eBay for $175, which is not a bad return on an original price of 10 cents.
