A recent link on Journalista reminded us that cartoonist/animator Doug Gray has a blog, The Greatest Ape, which is to wacky old oddball comics as Golden Age Comics Stories is to Reed Crandall, but not, sadly as prolific. Here’s a page of SuperKatt by Dan Gordon from 1946. Since we were just getting all teary-eyed over printing in a previous post, it’s worth noting that the cheap reproduction and badly cut color seps have led to a kind of wavy line beauty that is only found in KRAMERS ERGOT and PictureBox comics these days. Also, dig that incredibly vibrant color palette! John K. would get teary-eyed over this.
When you’re done with that, it’s time to move on to this.
