Welcome to the third and final post in which we will accomplish our stated mission of posting every story from Coo Coo Comics No. 28, August 1946. This first story, featuring the long-forgotten character of Pop Korn, is by Disney master Al Taliaferro. Mr. Taliaferro is best remembered for his work illustrating the Donald Duck strip from 1938 until his death in 1969.
This is the part of comic book collecting I love: finding the work of artists totally new to me. These next two stories feature the artwork of Paul Sommer and Curt Perkins, respectively. I had never heard of either artist before delving into this comic and have been able to find out precious little. But, as you can see, their work is solid and attractive. This makes me wonder how many hundreds of good artists worked in this period that are completely unknown to me.
So, in conclusion: The purpose of this three-part post was to, by posting every story from a single issue of Coo Coo Comics during the Golden age, gain insight into the hardships endured by an editor gathering material for a single volume anthology (like, say for example, The Golden Collection of Klassic Krazy Kool Kids Komics edited by Craig Yoe).Well, all I can say is, my hat is off to Mr. Yoe, big time! I can hardly decide which stories I like the best from this single, 7-story comic!
