Saturdy Leftover Day.
After doing Hey Look for most of the post war period, Harvey Kurtzman was asked to do something a bit more commercial. He was offered the Rusty Book with a new twist: it weas going to be written by Stan Lee and drawn in a style similar to the succesful Blondie strip. Kurtzman, who already was unable to make anything look unexciting, di his best. But somehow the character, the writer and the artist didn't click. Al Jaffee took over for the remaining stories (as I have shown before). I had only one of the two issues of this reincarnation of Blondie by Harvey and Stanley, but found the second one online so I am able to share it now. The most exciting part for me is the activities page, where Kurtzman shows his cartoon and design skills quite ably.
