The Gates Of H Division

Monday Cartoon Day.

Art Gates started out doing cartoons in the army. He produced quite a few actually and was pretty succesful with them. After that he turned to advertising and other commercial projects. In the fifties he returned to comics, sometimes as a funny artist, but mostly as a realistic artists (of minimal scope). In the late fifties he returned to his former style when he sold a series of army gags to newspapers. A bit stange to be doing army gags that were as much based on WWII as on the current situation, but he kept it going for a couple of years.
