Countdown To 2013

Thursday Tall Tales

Over the next few days I will be showing some more Tall Tales by Al Jaffee I have been stockpiling. I usually send them to Al as well, who liked them so much he bought couple for himself on ebay. Now I don't dare to bid on them anymore, in case I might me bidding against the artist himself!

Santa and the Ice King 1

Monday Christmas Treat.

Illustrated Santa storis were all the rage in ht ethirties and forties. I have shown some with art by Noel Sickles and Hank Barrow. For the next few days I have a later sample, from the early fifties. The art is by Dick Hodgins Jr., we went on to do Hlaf Hitch with Hank Ketcham and for the last couple of years does the inking on the Hagar strip. I say last couple of years, but he may have been doing it for a long while.

Jungle Fever

Sunday Meskin Measures.

Excuses for the erratic posting the last few days, but unfrtunately I have been ill. Nothing bad, just a throat infection with high fever. Nothing to do but get through it. Here is anotehr Mark Merlin story, with three of those inset panels teven Brower mentioned in the comments last week. I din't know whu started it, but Meskin certainly took a shine to it.
