The One That Made The Camel's Back

Wednesday Advertising Day.

I found on emore Bilko Camels ad by Bob Bugg I didn't yet have and added it to the earlier post.

Here are all I could find. If they were twice a month (as most ads were) and stated and ended at the time of my first and last find, I may actually now have all of them. Lovely stuff.

Here's To You, Mr. Robinson

Monday Cartoon Day.

In the sixties one time Batman artist, Mort Meskin collaborator, New York School of Art Comics instructor, comics book artist and illustrator Jerry Robinson, took to cartooning as his way of making a living. But he kept his realistic background. Although the humor of Cassroom Flubs and Fluffs (illustrated puns inadvertantly made by kids and sent in by their parents) may have seemed a bit old hat even when he came up with it, it looked great. Hre are some samples, I have many more to scan.

FF To The Resque

Friday Comic Book Day.

Friend of blog Smurfswacker asked if I could get my hands on the Wonder Woman pages that Frank Godwin is supposed to have drawn. Well I could and here they are. I think. Anyone out there who can confirm it? Apparently the first one isn't by Godwin, but the others are. The last one is from one of those microfiche collections. I apologize for the condition. There is one more from a summer editon of another title I don't have.
