Barreling Along

Wednesday Illustration Day.

In the early sixties, Al Jaffee got himself a bit of extra work by illustrating a gag book from Scholastic. Publishing books and magazines for schools and school children, they never shied away from comic book material or artists. Jerry Robinson illustrated a couple of their young adventure novels and a few years later after this, Bud Blake did a kid's book as well. In 1958 they published two articles about Stan Lee and Joe Maneely's newspaper strip Mrs. Lyons Cubs. I have copies of one of those two instances, but only a written record of the second. Anyone with comics related material in their Scholastic magazines can see me after class. I have shown these before, but accidentally without the cover.
