Holiday Fun

Sunday Meskin Measures.

Another DC adventure by Mort Meskin. He was always at his best when he was not doing space stories (apart maybe for his short run on the Tom Corbett comic book for Harvey). In fact, stories like these would have fitted better in Men's Adventure type of book, which DC didn't have at the time. But still, there seems to be something off to me. Since I am going backward in uploading these storie, here we are coming up to the period when Meskin had some sort of nervous breakdown and had to be assisted by Joe Kubert and Carmine Infantino in a couple of stories (eventhough Meskin biographer Steven Brower says neither of them mentioned that, the art itself shows there was something going on). This jungle story is okay, but for some reason it doesn't seem as exciting as some of his others.
