When my maid, John Epperson, was a little boy, he
didn't play with G.I. Joe dolls; he played with his sisters'
Barbies. And he didn't read superhero comic books, he read "Millie
The Model." The adventures of Millie Collins, her photographer
boyfriend Clicker, her boss Mr. Hanover, gal pal Toni Turner
and Millie's rival, the redhead minx known as Chili Storm, were
so thrilling to little Johnny, that he wrote the book, music
and lyrics for a 1986 musical called "Dial 'M' For Model,"
based on his Millie fascination. I, Lypsinka, starred as titian-haired
Mannequin St. Claire (the character inspired by Chili) and the
show was produced originally at the legendary Pyramid Club and
later at LaMaMa E.T.C.
Now, my maid and I want to share with you some of
the colorful, silly pages and covers from Epperson's Millie collection.
If you are also a Millie fan, keep watch on eBay, because my
hideous maid has duplicate copies of some of these issues that
he might want to sell! Millie is Glamour-a-Go-Go!
