Petit Teepee

Friday Comic Book Day

Last week Mike Kazaleh mailed me to say that the Teepee Tim story I showed probably wasn't by Irv Spector but by 'one of the West Coast animators'. Only the cover may have been by Spector. This weeks I have another Teepee Tim story and cover. This time too, the cover is most likely to be by Spector. At least, it looks like his loose and angular inking line. Still, it's lively art. So let's have a look at it.

Hi, Ger

It's always exciting to discover another great cartoonist, so thank you for introducing me to the work of Irv Spector. I realize I've seen a lot of his work before, and thought it was Howie Post.

Please look at

which I thought was by Harvey Kurtzman, but now I think it looks a lot like Spector's work.

I do't think Buzzy is by either specor or Kurtzman. The cartoonist who did this, is the third 'new' addition by Stan Lee in 1945. Like Kurtzman and Spector he introduces his own character. Like Spector, he is gone by the end of the year. This cartoonist his a minimalistic style all his own. His characters all have very weird heads and smiles. I was holding out on posting and scanning his stories until I had a clue who he could be, but now that you have posted a story (and one I haven't got) I will ad a link to it today and mention the whole thing. Paul Spector confirmed to me that Mugsy-Doo is by his father. The title was a continuation of Lucky Duck and like that, done by him. Unfortunately, they are even harder to get than Lucky Duck. So if you have any, I'd like to exchange scans.
