Wonders in Aliceland

Friday Comic Book Day.

On February 2 2012 I shared a complete run in black and white of Chad Grothkopf's version of the Alice in Wonderland story, as part of his famous literature Sunday only series from the early fifties. Around the same time the same stories appeared in Parent Magazine's comic book Funny Book #1. I don;t know which version came first. I know it is not the first time Parents had a story do double duty in the newspapers and the comic books, they did something similar with True. Anyway, it shows what a tremendous artist Grothkopf was, even (or maybe specificly) at this early point in his career.
