Monday Cartoon day.
Lately I have been looking at Saturday Evening Post cartoons. It's mostly the same old crowd that worked the second tier circuit (with The New Yorker being the first ter and the girly magazines being at te bottom). Berenstain, Boltinoff, Chon Day, Hudson, Henderson, Keller, Rea, Caplan, Shafer, Gerard, Ross, Hilton, Syverson. One major difference is that Mort Walker did a lot of Saturday Evening Post (from Spetember 1948 onwards) and not a lot of Collier's (from October 1949) and Virgil Partch did a lot of Collier's and (virtually) no Saturday Evening Post. Absolute king for me is Hank Ketcham, who is always funny and always very well drawn. In 1948 another artist turn up, who reminds me of Ketch. He is pretty funny too, and although his style is not as flashy as Ketcham's, it is pretty well executed. I rad his name as Hickey, although I have found no referecne to this guy anywhere. Anyone out there who can help me?
