Have You No Shane?
Friday Comic Book Day
Today I am helped by the wonderful Shane Glines, whose cartoon Retro site used to be all the rage among Dutch artists a couple of years ago. It may still be, but when Shane started his site of beautiful comicy art from all the ages, the whole idea of sharing stuff like that on the web was still new and surprising. Now everyone seems to be doing it, including me. I am proud to have Shane among my visitors and he sent me his scans of Irv Spector's Muggy-Doo #12, which includes two Irv Spector drawn Muggy Doo stories as well as a beautiful cover. This is the Spector I like best - loose, but not to loose, beautifully designed stories and a very lively brush style. I don't think #12 actually is a #12, but some sort of reprint from the early sixties. The cover image is taken from the actual Muggy-Doo, Boy Cat #4 cover and so may the contents.
