"Cookie" by Dan Gordon

Cookie O'Toole, and his subsequent, teenage universe; was created in the wake of the mammoth popularity of the teen prototype, Archie Andrews. What Cookie had going for it, besides hip jive and cool characters like, "Jitterbug," "Zoot," and "Angelpuss;" was the super-fine art of Dan Gordon. Presented here are two samplings from Cookie No. 14, Aug.-Sept. 1948. It doesn't come much better than this.

This ad comes from the same issue. I'm seeing a boy, looking out the front window of his home, watching for the mailman.


  1. Great stuff. So much perspective and volume in these drawings - yet still cartoony.

  2. David: Volume! That's the perfect word.
