G.I. Mort

Saturday Leftover Day.

Before he came up with Beetle Bailey Mort Walker was a cartoonist and before that he studied journalism at hte University of Missouri on the G.I. Bill. While there, he soon took up his old wish to live from his drawings and became not only a frequent contributor but also the editor of the university humor magazine The Missouri Showme. It's long been a holey grail of mine to have all issues and now I am getting closer. Here are all the Mort walker pages from the December 1946 issue. He probably started in the September issue of that year and continued for two.
