The Mexican Ambassador

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

Gordo had two starts, one in the early years of the war and one after the war, when the artist had returned from service. Bot early runs are impressive. While Gus Arriola later developed a sense of abstraction that was unique on the comic page, in doing so he lost his more detailed and semi-realistic art form. Maybe not as special, but just as impressive.

so beautiful...the cartoonists coming out of the Disney and MGM studios sure were heads and tails over the others. I can understand now why Western Publishing seemed to hire only animation people to draw their comics.
