Li'L Abner-Al Capp-1941
Considering how early it was, this particular ABNER ad might actual be by Capp. Most later ones featuring his characters were done by assistants and, at best, had the faces retouched by Capp.

Suzie-Bill Woggon-1946
Here's our old friend Suzie in some GGA (Good Girl Art--an old fan term) with some clever layouts by Katy Keene's Poppa, Bill Woggon.

Comic Con and Me...Whenever
This is the week of Comic Con in San Diego. I will, as usual,
be staying home. In fact, in the four decades that San Diego has been home to
the world’s biggest (and increasingly less comics-centered) comic book
convention, I only attended once. That was in ...

Mark Arnold on Stu's Show
One of my favorite things about the Internet Age is STU'S SHOW. After enjoying host Stu Shostak and his guests' passionate love for classic TV and cartoons for years I was able to appear on it myself last year alongside (well, virtually at least) Kathy Cole...

Gems-John Severin/Will Elder-1951
This little gem has some little known early art by the Severin/Elder team. Both men, of course, would go on to legendary status in the field at EC and beyond but that was still several years later here.

Ballad of a Man Called Yoe
  After spending 26 years as a bookseller, librarian, or
bookstore manager, my livelihood went away at the end of 2008 when the Airport
closed an entire concourse while I was managing the Airport Borders. Naively, I
assumed I could take a few weeks off and ...

Pete and Pudgie-Win Smith-1940
I'm a sucker for the 1939-40 New York World's Fair and here's some really fun art with some characters I'd never met before. A fun story.

Ted Parrish, Man of 1000 Faces-1942
Lon Chaney, of course, was the "Man of 1000 Faces" but Chaney had died a dozen years earlier so the nickname was up for grabs. In this series, it was grabbed by one Ted Parrish, an actor who used his acting and makeup skills in the cause of justice as often...
