Let's begin a tour of Giggle Comics No. 71, May-June 1950. First (after the cool Dan Gordon cover) the terrific work of Bob Wickersham who, I have recently learned from pal John K, signed his comic book work "Wick" or "Bob Wick." Wickersham was a ex-animator who worked for Disney, Warners, and Fliescher studios through the 1930s and 1940s. In Monty, the Miracle Mouse - a brilliant story of a funny animal arms race set in Brooklyn - one can really see wonderful evidence of Wickersham's animation background.
Another pen name! Don R. Christensen often signed his comic book work, "Don Arr." Yep, another ex-animator. Among other work, Christensen was a storyboard artist for Bob Clampett's unit at Warners. I've yet to see a comic book story by Don Arr that didn't sport a gorgeous splash panel (and gorgeous work throughout as well).
And let's polish things off with a couple of ads from the same issue!
