Recently, good friend, Pappy (of Golden Age Comics Blogzine fame) ran a great Beany & Cecil post by Jack Bradbury. Feeling inspired, I dove into my collection, looking for some JB. Being such a fan of the artist, I didn't have to look far. Bradbury was one of the greatest cartoonists of all time, and these two stories give evidence to the claim. Both are from Coo Coo Comics No. 36, November 1947. This first has Bradbury doing his version of Supermouse, a character many greats worked on (Milt Stein, Al Hubbard, Dan Gordon, and Gene Fawcett to name a few). Bradbury's Supermouse, to say the least, holds its own in some very fast company.
This second story stars Dodger De Squoil, a feisty, scrappy squirrel with a Brooklyn accent; who seems more than a little influenced by a well known feisty, scrappy rabbit with a Brooklyn accent. More great stuff here - what great character design.
Finally, this awesome ad from the same issue. "Fellers - here's a dream of a game!" Show of hands. Who would rather play with this than with PS3? C'mon! I can't be the only one!
