Memorial Weekend, Day 3

First, for Memorial Day itself, we have If the Living and the Dead Were to March Together by Harrison Cady, from a 1916 issue of Life magazine, during World War I.

Click on any cartoon, to see an enlarged version.

LivingAndDeadMarchTogetherLife1916Cady

During Great Depression I, unemployed WW I veterans sold pamphlets, to raise small amounts of cash. Similar in concept to the modern Street News sold by the homeless in New York City, this activity lent these veterans more dignity, than outright begging. Some of the pamphlets had prices on them, but many simply asked people to pay what they pleased.

The remaining cartoons are from such pamphlets. The immediately below page is by Doc Rankin, while the artist of the next page is unidentified.

Below left, the cover from one such pamphlet, with cover art by Winsor McCay. The below right photo is from when, in 1932, President Herbert Hoover had unemployed WW I veterans driven out of Washington, D.C. using troops, bayonets, and tear gas.

Memorial Weekend, Day 2: Wall Street Frauds Make Wonderful Cartoons, Part 26

During Great Depression I, unemployed WW I veterans sold pamphlets, to raise small amounts of cash. Similar in concept to the modern Street News sold by the homeless in New York City, this activity lent these veterans more dignity, than outright begging. Some of the pamphlets had prices on them, while others simply asked people to pay what they pleased.

Click on either cartoon, to see an enlarged version.

The below right photo is at an encampment of unemployed WW I veterans (labelled “Hoovervilles”), just outside Washington, D.C., in 1932. These veterans, known as the Bonus Army, were seeking early payment of a promised service bonus. President Hoover had them forcibly driven out of Washington, D.C., using troops and tear gas — an action which sealed Hoover’s fate that election year.

Click on the photograph below right, to watch Part 2 of the PBS documentary March of the Bonus Army, produced by Glenn Marcus & director Robert Uth, and narrated by Gary Sinise.

Above left, a cartoon by Vaughn Shoemaker, from before the veterans were chased out of D.C., when some were hoping the bonus would be paid early, and stimulate the economy.

Memorial Weekend, Day 1: Wall Street Frauds Make Wonderful Cartoons, Part 25

During Great Depression I, unemployed WW I veterans sold pamphlets, to raise small amounts of cash. Similar in concept to the modern Street News sold by the homeless in New York City, this activity lent these veterans more dignity, than outright begging. Some of the pamphlets had prices on them, but many simply asked people to pay what they pleased.

All this Memorial Day week, we will be presenting some of the cartoons from these pamphlets.

The below right photo is of unemployed WW I veterans at the Capitol Steps in Washington, D.C., in 1932. Known as the Bonus Army, they were seeking early payment of a promised service bonus. President Hoover had them forcibly driven out of Washington, D.C., using troops and tear gas — an action which sealed Hoover’s fate that election year.

Bazooka Yoe

Did you know that at Yoe! Studio we did a couple of years worth of Bazooka Joe comics (and fortunes!)? Well, we did. I love dem Bazooka Joe comics! And Kirk is right, I have a section on the brilliant Wesley Morse, Joe’s original artist, in my new book Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings. Morse is one of my fave cartoonists, I also drew a strip that’s a tribute to him and about Tijuana Bibles in the new Hotwire anthology. (See you at the Hotwire signing at Rocketship tonight?) Morse did lots of hard-core Tijuana Bibles, but also did some just nice sexy girlie cartooning and nudes that you’ll see in Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings. I thought I’d check out to see what You Tube had on Joe and found this nifty commercial. The comics in the background aren’t the ones we did but, I think, they’re by the terrific team that proceeded us of Jay Lynch and Howard Cruse.

Friday’s THE FLYING FLICK! Batman Theme Song Goes Punk!

My fave part of the Arf Lover’s blog each week is DJ David B. Spins Comics Tunes. I LOVED the Batman theme song DJDB presented this week. And there was a comment by a “James B.” (any relation to David B.?) that turned us on to a version of the Batman theme by some “pop punk” group called The Jam. If I’m supposed to know The Jam, forgive me, I shamefully know so little about music in general. Anywho, I googled around and found a fun video of The Jam doing the Batman theme. So, to join in the Bat fun, I’m presenting that as this Friday’s THE FLYING FLICK!

Friday’s THE FLYING FLICK!

Last Friday on the debut THE FRIDAY FLICK! there was a fun animated bit. This week it’s live action. Well, sorta. The part I really love about this Private Snuffy Smith movie is that the opening that shows drawings of Snuffy, Lowizie and The Sergeant that morph into the live action actors. The drawings ain’t exactly by the great Billy DeBeck who drew the comic adventures of Snuffy Smith and Barney Google for he funnies, but it’s still a good time! Oh, and D.J. David B., there’s a “Time’s A Wastin’ ” and a “Yardbirds” song that’s part of the festivities. After the movies I do have an unpublished drawing by DeBeck of Snuffy and Barney from my collection for your pleasure and a pic of DeBeck.

New Arf Lovers Feature: THE FLYING FLICK!

I’m very excited to announce a new feature on the Arf Lovers Blog! Every Friday you’ll experience weird and wonderful videos. What Doll Man is to Mondays and D.J. David B. is to Tuesdays and Wacky Wonder Woman is to Wednesdays, The Flying Flick feature will be to Fridays. And The Flying Flick will be hosted by…THE FLYING FLICK! There’s rumored to be an unwritten rule at Marvel and DC that the word “FLICK” can’t be used in scripts because it might be misread as a dirty word. I have no such morals or sense of responsibility, so welcome the latest, greatest superhero, THE FLYING FLICK! : )

If you have a blog please spread the word (and let me know and I’ll link back to you).

The first offering is the 1949 Terrytoon “Comic Book Land”. My pal Bob Beerbohm turned me on to this way cool cartoon. This is the perfect kick-off because it has all the things you’ll see in upcoming episodes of the FLYING FLICK: Wackyness, Sex, Drama and that Cool-Beans Quality! I have many more wonky, wild videos of all kinds coming up on THE FLYING FLICK every Friday…so stay tooned!
