More than halfway through this short month already and the weather turns to fall. One still needs a daily dose of comics history, however, so let’s get to a few links.
I had never heard of LITTLE ARCHIE MYSTERY until today when HAIRY GREEN EYEBALL II posted issue 1 (of only 2) from 1963. Bob Bolling, the main writer/artist for the regular LITTLE ARCHIE series writes and draws “The Egyptian Goddess Mystery.”
Often in comics of the 1940′s, ’50′s and ’60′s. comic books would feature non-story pages featuring their characters. Today, Sam Henderson MAGIC WHISTLE serves up a series of judo lesson pages drawn by the great Lee Elias and featuring Harvey’s BLACK CAT.
Thanks to Lisa Mynx for pointing out the GAY LEAGUE site, a fascinating site where various LGBT writers and bloggers write and blog about comics of all sorts. There’s also a very interesting timeline of gay comics and creators at the link below.
GENE RUBIN AUDIO shares an ultra-rare, one-of-a-kind FANTASIA book given as a memento to a departing Disney employee in 1946. Lots of large size original and sometimes surprisingly off-color signed pieces featuring Donald, Mickey,Goofy and more! The book is set to be auctioned off at a future date.
