Dr. Feelgood

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Although his style was a bit band and his gags were a bit too sweet, Roland Coe was a very popular cartoonist in the forties and his style influenced many artists. You can see his influence in the work of Dave Gerhard and Dik Browne. Or at least, I can. He had a succesful newspaper a series called His Nibs for Nebisco. I found a few more color samples, which I have added to the lack and white ones I showed earlier.

I acame across an early sample of this strip in a daily paper as well.

And to round this off, here are some cartoons he did for Collier's.
