Captain's Library GET SMART "Infiltration Caper"

Would you believe the spies you're supposed to infiltrate want you to infiltrate the spies who employ you?
Only Maxwell Smart could end up in that situation...
Illustrated by Henry Scarpelli, this tale from Dell's Get Smart #7 (1967) captures more of the vaudville-humor flavor of the show itself than most of the comic stories.
Unfortunately, it was also the last new issue of the comic.
Scarpelli illustrated a number of Dell's tv adaptations, including The Beverly Hillbillies, Bewitched, Hogan’s Heroes and McHale’s Navy.
He eventually ended up at Archie Comics, where he did both comic book stories, but illustrated the both the Archie daily and Sunday newspaper strip for 15 years!
BTW, the writer is unknown, but may have been Scarpelli himself.
Unfortunately, there's no way to verify it.
