Only For The Nicest People

Sunday Sarcasm Day

There is a nice line of sarcasm that runs from Tom K Ryan's Tumbleweeds to his assistant's Jim Davis' Garfiel and to hís assistant Bett Koth's Diamons Lil. I have many more Tumbleweed from the sevties waiting to be scanned, but here a some more.

Dunn and Busted

Saturday Gross Day. 

So much to share, so little time to share it. That's My Pop is one of the later Milt Gross stripd and I love it. Even though it is generally accepted that this is not by Gross himself (who could not work too hard because of a heart condition for the last ten years of his life) but Bob Dunn. It seems to me one of the best thing Dunn ever did.

Fun Learning

Saturday Leftover Day. 

I had these in my folder, because I planned to get more of them. But it turned out this amusing series ran for a lot longer than I thought.

Wednesday Day Wonders. 

Just one page, but so much madness.

Ha! Indeed!

Tuesday Good Newsday. 

I am always interested in finding new published material by the rgeat cartoonist Al Hirschfeld.And although there are several book collections of his work, I always have the impression that not even half of his work has been collected. Here is the first chapter of the novelisation of the book Westward Ha! by S. J. Perelman and illustrated by Hirschfeld in the woman's magazine Redbook (which is now available on The Internet Archive for those years). There was a book made from this, but from what I can see, I am not sure if all the drawings were used or even if some of them were redrawn. To start, I pulled the first chapter, which also happens to be from one of the few color issues on that platform.

For The Fun Of It

 Monday Funday.

I was going to do a post about some interesting new stuff I found on The Internet Archive, but when I typed the title above, I remembered I still have two issues if the Philidelphia Inquirer Fun Book ready to be shared. Here is the first one. For more explanation click the link to see the others.

CRACKING GOOD

Tuesday Cartoon Carnival 

Over the years my posts here have become longer. It also means that sometimes I take a bit longer to get everything ready. I am currently working on three interesting series which will only work if I share a year's worth of Sundays. In the meantime, here is a set of Crcak-Up cartoons from very contributing cartoonist except Virgil Partch. Crack-Up was a daily cartoon series from the leftwing New York PM magazine, with six different artists each contributing one day. In the past I have shared many of these, especially those by Virgil Partch, who usually filled the Sunday slot (PM did not have a saturday edition). 

He did this for six years, which at one a week could mean he did 300 original cartoons. Except that he did not always contribute. To find out how many times he actually delivered a cartoon, I have started anew from a fresh newpaper source. That means I would have a long way to go before I can share muy findings. I do get cartoons by some of the otehrs now and then and I have collected those here to clean up my files. There may be some doubles, I have shown before, but it is the only way to thoroughly clear up everything.
