Changing Styles

Friday Comic Book Day.

One of the reasons I like browsing in the comic books over at the Digital Comics Museum is you never know what you will find as filler items in some of the books. From Standard's Happy Comics I have here a funny George Tuska fairy tale (which I recognize anywhere), one by George Roussos (which I wouldn't have recognized if it wasn't signed) and two by Frank Frazetta (which will probaby have been reprinted in Craig Yoe's excellent book of all of Frazetta's funny animal stories and illustrations).

I Love Comics Sites

Thursday Story Strip Day.

No Hap Hopper today, but I have a surprise for you tomorrow.

The iloveComix Archive (login at at is a wonderful interrnet resource for scans of old newspaper comics from all ages, including a lot from my favorite decade. I don't go there as often as I should because their interface isn't as easy to manage as I would like it to be and I always seem to type the wrong adress (see the comments for more on that). A fellow collector alerted me to the fact that they have a great run of Apartment 3G Sundays, including a lot from the earliest years. So, with my thanks to who ever scanned this... here a beautifully drawn bit of soap for you.
