Kit Karter is a 1962 comic book about a "teenager who "eats, sleeps, and drinks GO KARTS." His pal Axil Greez has an impossible haircut.
The first issue is available for download here.
UPDATE: Holy Roger Kaputnik! I just learned that Kit Karter was written and illustrated by Dave Berg, the "Lighter Side of..." cartoonist from MAD.
