Lady of color.

Thursday story Day.

Not much of a story today, as my run of Jeanie dailies is running out. As a bonus I have the color version of the next Sunday.

As another bonus, here is another of those Fox/Browne ads from februari 1952. I think it's by Dik Browne, but I still can't rule out Fox's involvement. The bottom tier is by Ronald Coe, who as I wrote in an earlier post was a Saturday Evening Post cartoonist of some fame and clearly well known enough to be signing his work. After that, I have another of his ads from 1948, now even signed in the first panel. It is more of an old fashioned style, but pretty nonetheless.

That sure looks like Harry Haenigsen art to me on the first ad, Coe's signature notwithstanding.

I was going to say how much of an influence Haenigson must have been on the commercial style of Gill Fox an Dik Browne. Things is, this is much ore alive than anything Haenigson drew in that period. I'll show you.
