It's time for some of the turbulent antics of The Fox and the Crow! The following stories are two of my favorite Fox and Crow stories, and they are both from the same issue (Real Screen Comics No. 26, October-November 1949). The first story I love because trusting Fox comes out on top - a rare and happy occurrence! The artist is the great Jim Davis (no relation to the contemporary Garfield artist).
I love this second story the best. It is a glorious example of the complex, loyal friendship Fox and Crow had despite their opposite personalities. It also has a beautiful moment of self realization for Crow, wherein he is forced to see himself as others do! The Fox and the Crow! Pals through it all!
Now for a couple of great ads from the same issue. "The Atom Bubble Boy" was a precursor to the far more popular "Bazooka Joe and his Gang." I don't know who the artist is. Won't someone clue me in?
Belated congratulations to Mr. Lou Boudreau - Wheaties' "Athlete of the Year" for 1948! Mr. Boudreau had a lifetime batting average of .295 with a career total 1,779 hits and 789 runs batted in. The Cleveland Indian's infielder was nominated to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1970 with 77.33 percent of the vote.Then, as now, Wheaties - breakfast of champions!
