Super Goof!

Super Goof was Goofy (one of my personal heroes) with super powers, acquired by eating super goobers (peanuts) he grew in his garden. Here’s a short, 4-page story from Walt Disney’s Super Goof No. 3, May, 1966. I’ve included a the B&W inside cover pages (which I always love) for an extra treat. All pencils here are by Tony Strobl with inks (at least for the story) by Steve Steere.

Why is Goofy my hero? Because it is his nature to love everyone, and everything. Certainty, he can become angry at behavior, but he never hates the person behaving badly. He loves life. He loves the world around him, always. It is his nature to be happy, and he has a simple trust the world will always be joyful.

Goofy loves - first and always.

Warren Kremer's Stumbo the Giant

I've always thought Warren Kremer (the artist here) was one of the greatest comic book masters of all time. I'd put him in my top 10 easily. Here one of Kremer's greatest creations, Stumbo the Giant, battles a nemesis, the wonderful Dr. Cesspool. on Stumbo, Kremer's beautiful sense of perspective and detail shine.

From Hot Stuff, The Little Devil – December, 1965, No. 69.

Walt Disney's Comics and Stories No. 108 - Bucky Bug!

What the world needs now is more kids’ comics, so let’s fire this blog up and see if she still runs!

The cover is a classic from the great Carl Barks, and the Bucky Bug story, “Rainbow’s End,” is from Gil Turner, who as a young man worked delivering ice before becoming an animator with Disney in 1933. His career would find him at all the major animation studios, all the while working as a cartoonist for Dell throughout the 1940s. Great stuff! All from Walt Disney Comics and Stories No. 18, September 1949.
