Fun and Elephants
Friday Comic Book Day.
Today a couple more pieces by Irv Spector, which were sent to me by his son. The first is a cover and two pages from 3d Features Jet Pup. I don'[t know if there are any more pages bu Spector in this book, but I don't think they were drawn aspecially for 3d. The figure on the right on the cover is his, surely. The others could be by another artist.
This Spenser Spook cover is from Giggle #97, which makes me curious about Giggle #98:
And finally, like last week, I want to end this with some work by Walt Kelly. Several people have noted the resemblence between Spector's work at this time and that of Kelly. Next week I want to try and show some of Howie Post's stuff, another artist who waas influenced by Kelly in some phases of his career. As you can see, Kelly's own comic book work was a lot less polished than his work on Pogo. But it also gave him more room to created stroyboard-like sequences full of action. THis rarely seen sample is from Animal Comics #22, which makes it from before Pogo's succes as a newspaper strip.
