Pretty Pictorial

Monday Cartoon Day.

Another precious favorite. From late 1944 to around thes ame time a year later, Virgil Partch illustrated the weekly column by Arthur Bear. The column itself is funny enough, but the illustrations show Partch at his most absurd. Apart from some of his color work for True, this may be his most remarkable artwork in my opinion. I am slowly building a complete set of these, so I can publish them as an ebook. Unless one of my readers has a selection and wants to share it... a normal book collection would not do it, because the book would either have to be very big or reformatted to presrve the text or you would have to delete the text, which would be a pitty in my opinion. In an ebook version you would be able to enlarge them whenever necessary.
