Battle Cake-Ross Andru/Mike Esposito-1956
One doesn't often call a war comic "fun" but this one is. Batman/Green Lantern co-creator Bill Finger is the credited writer. The Andru/Esposito team provides the unusual splash panel (as well as the rest of the art)

The Night of Friday the 13th-Lou Cameron-1954
This story is pretty wordy but Lou Cameron's lively art and layouts more than make up for that. Cameron is one of those guys whose work I had never seen before I started this blog but who is now a favorite from the fifties.

Gloomy Gus, the Homeless Ghost-Red Holmdale-1945
Perhaps inspired by the great success of the 1941 film, HERE COMES MR. JORDAN in which a man is killed before his time and, with some angelic help, tries on the bodies of others as they pass. The series ran for quite a while. The movie was remade in the sev...

1977 and Me
Yesterday I was searching through boxes upstairs for
something I never found. Along, the way, though, I found a number of
interesting things, not the least of which were a handful of documents I had
written at the tail end of 1977, 1978, and 1979, summing u...

On the Set-Detective Comics-1954
I always loved these little one or two page fillers in DC Comics, usually by Henry Boltinoff. This doesn't look like his work to me but still funny and not even noted in GCD.

Inspector Willoughby-1962
I've seen this cartoon character, promoted by Walter Lantz in the late 1950s and early 1960s, described as a sort of human version of MGM's Droopy. Works.

Fantastic Splash # 3
This third issue of FF offers yet another multi-chapter story that would have been quite at home in an Atlas fantasy title. Notable here, though, is that our heroes add (and the Thing just as quickly discards) costumes, making the title start to lean more t...

Mento the Mighty-Don Heck-1960
Typically lush Don heck art in this pre-Marvel story about a would-be super-villain. I'm surprised he didn't turn up again a couple years later to battle the FF or Iron Man.

Captain Steve Savage Over Korea-Wally Wood-1950
Long but some lively early Woodwork. Reads a bit like a 1950s TV version of the artist's R-rated 1970s strip, CANNON. For those who like hard copies, this was reprinted in one of Vanguard's several enjoyable recent hardcover collections of Wallace Wood's ea...

Bob and Ray-Mort Drucker-1957
A little tribute to Bob Elliott who passed away this week. I discovered Bob and Ray in the 1980s with their public radio series but then devoured their deadpan humor anywhere else I could find it after that...including several early issues of MAD. R.I.P.

Hedy Wolfe-Miss America Magazine-1951
In a way, Hedy was Veronica to Patsy Walker's Betty. Patsy was, of course, later integrated into the Marvel Universe as Hellcat. Outside of a cameo outside Reed and Sue's wedding, was Hedy ever brought into the main Marvel continuity? No idea of the artist ...
