A Real National Emergency

Several years ago I copied Hogan's Alley's article about Al Capp's WWII war bond strip Small Change. It was accompanied by a series of samples fron this strip from the collection of Denis Kitchen with one scan by myself. Today I am glad to repeat them with a four new new selfmade scans.

Later on the strip was recalled Small Change and a numbering was added.

My own scan is #21. The originals after that are numbered as well. The first few are from the collection at the University of Michicab, then there are a few from CoollinesArt (which apparently are still for sale) and some that were already sold by Heritage Auctions. If you woner, the going price for these is $400/500.

Eek The Man

Saturday Leftover Day.

I have shared many an episode of Howie Schneider's The Circis of P.T. Bimbo. Gis most famous and longer running strip was Eek and Meek, which started out as a strof philosophical mice but ended up being about actual human beings. Because they were usually only sitting around and talking or walking around and talking, it doesn't show Schneider's visual abillities as well as Bimbo. He was like Bill Watterson, who combined slapstick and philosophy in one strip. Schneider spread it over two. Except for once in a while. Here are two remarkable Eek and Meek strips, from when they had just been changed into human beings (like the mice in the Cincerella story).

Totally Toth

The first of three Alex Toth stories from Jimmy Wakely #12. I am not sure about the cover, but inside there are many more Tothism than in the previous stories.
