"Rhubarb" is Dell's Four Color adaptation of the 1951 screwball comedy of the same name; directed by Arthur Lubin and starring Ray Miland and Jan Sterling. This striking (and slightly unsettling) cover will have to go uncredited. Download THIS POST!
The story art is all Don Gunn, an assistant animator with Disney in the 1930s and 1940s. Like so many of his generation, Gunn turned to comics when big studio animation dried up and blew away in the late 1940s. Most of his work was for Western Publishing, and most of that Disney characters. Mr. Gunn passed away in 1972.I like this story a great deal because it shows Gunn not having to work within the round softness of the Disney style. Gunn certainly isn't a household name and that's what I love about him. Lovely stuff upcoming.
