Sunday Meskin Measures.
The real Mort Meskin fans may know this story, because I pinched the More Fun #97 scans from Sandy Jarrell's site (http://www.sandyjarrell.com/). Sandy is a comic book artist (who is currently drawing the very enjoyable Batman '66 series) who has contributed scans of the more rare Mesking stories to my blog. In various groups he is one of the more vocal voices asking or a full reprint of Meskins two major DC series from the forties: The Vigilante and Johnny Quick. He has bought books and collected scans as well as made a couple of his own and you can see them on his site. But I am going to do something different with them here. I will try and sya something intelligent about every page. I have shown so many Meskin pages with general remarks, that it may be fun to see what I can say about these undividual pages.
One of the most remarkable things about this page is to note that this story is one of the few that were inked by the very young and already talented) Joe Kubert. Kubert confessed to being influenced by Meskin, although in his early days he showed more signs of picking up tricks from another idol, Will Eisner. Later on in this story, I will note a Meskin panel that looks very Eisnerish as well.
