The Wrestle With The Flessel

Tuesday Story Strip Day.

Toward the end of Creig Flessel's run on David Crane, he got a little bit sketchy. But thtat is the beauty of Flessel's work: he can suggest more than others can draw.

This is from as late as the end of 1970? Thanks for these rare gems, Ger. It's too bad this strip from a prolific artist who worked into his 90's won't likely appear in a collection.

Yes, these are indeed from late 1970! I agree, this strip overall is a pretty underrated gem.

And Flessel had an interestingly varied comic artist's career: he went from drawing, as Ger posted: "a young handsome clergyman...the Sunday[s] were usually some sort of sermon, complete with illustrated bible quote" to, from the blog “A Field Guide to Wild American Pulp Artists”: creating “a new long-running comic strip for Playboy magazine entitled, The Tales of Baron von Furstenbed, which he drew for eight years.”{!!!}
