We start today with the great cartoonist Henry Boltinoff, whose work went unheralded, mostly as filler, in National Comics for more than twenty years! Here’s a selection of his Warden Willis one and two pagers.
Speaking of cartoonists, here’s a 1966 selection from Charles Rodriguez, described as a black humorist here but nowhere near as dark as his humor became a decade later when he was working at the National Lampoon.
Our pal Jerry Beck has been saluting Archie’s fondly remembered Cosmo, the Merry Martian by Bob White lately over on Facebook. Someone even suggested Craig compile a book collection! Anyway, our other pal, Pappy, has compiled a few himself this morning with some background material.
Finally today, a brief but nicely illustrated tribute to the Good Dutch Duck Artist, Daan Jippes, a cartoonist whose work I discovered when Gladstone began offering his strips in English for the first time in the 1980′s.
