Tall_Tales_Aug_18_1963

Pappy reminds all of Craig’s relatively recent book BOODY (see elsewhere on this page) whilst reprinting a long and entertaining tale of Boody Rogers’ BABE, DARLING OF THE HILLS that was NOT found in said volume! Boody seems to be an acquired taste but I had no trouble acquiring it and if you like well-drawn and genuinely funny comics, I doubt that you will either.

Here’s a history and a reprint from Michael Fleischer and Jim Aparo’s legendarily violent and understandably short-lived SPECTRE series that ran in issues of DC’s venerable ADVENTURE COMICS in the late seventies. In spite of a history of good art, few would deny that Aparo OWNED this character’s look!

Originally an assistant to SPIRIT creator Will Eisner during his post-PS years, Mike Ploog debuted at Marvel in the early seventies and has been around the fringes of the industry ever since. Here’s a look at a couple of his vintage Marvel covers and the enhanced re-creations he produced more recently.

2008 NCS Reuben Award winner Al Jaffee is showcased in his 1961 comic strip TALL TALES over at the returning Ger Appeldorn’s blog. The black and white samples are from Monday but skip ahead to Tuesday for some color Sundays and the promise of more to come.
