I think that I shall never see a page as lovely...
Tuesday Comic Book Day.
Today I am sharing the remainder of the Redwood Weekly Gazette. I have posted about the unique comics page of the weekly paper about a year ago and it immediately was one of the best visited pages in hte history of this blog. The comics page for this paper was done by a group of animation artists moonlighting under the name of their own company. Nothing much came of it, but for a short while at least, they all had their own strips. I refer you to the previous page (follow the tag) to read more about these, in the blog as well as in the comments. Together with the earlier post, these cartoons represent all page sin my collection. There are a few missing, as the run of the Redwood Weekly in Newspaper Archive is a bit spotty for a short period at the end of 1950 and the beginning of 1951, after which the full page experiment was stopped.
And I draw your special attention to the gag panel done by Dick Shaw. I think he is on eof the funniest contributors of this page and his train centered gag panel mus have gone over big with his previous boss, Walt Disney. Dick Shaw was a contemporary of Hank Ketcham and Virgil Partch and I have added some of his earlier cartoons to the end of the post, as well as one caroon whoch seems to have been part of a campaign by the Traveler's Society.
