Supermouse isn’t really about battling evil. His primary focus, instead, is helping and loving his friends – who are normally children. Unpleasant or mean adults are simply friends waiting to happen. Or, to look at it another way, they are adults learning to be children. Or, to look at it yet another way, it is a brilliant kids’ comic. The art is by Milt Stein, and his bigfoot style is wondrously vibrant, perfectly composed, and smooth as silk balloons. He drew the greatest three-fingered hands that have ever been drawn. I’d bet a dollar he did the cover, too. And, not for nothing, he could bring a sudden, child-like emotion to the fore like a thunderclap. Take a peak at page 6 last panel. This is from Supermouse No. 7, May, 1950. All scans are from my own comic. Just click the image for the big picture.
This humiliating ad is from the same issue. For you boys out there, if you jiggle when you run and the other kids laugh at you, try to ignore them. Your day in the sun will come, I promise. Do not wear a girdle in the locker room under any circumstances.
