Stumbo the Giant Vs. Dr. Cesspool!

Hi, Kids! It’s so good to be with you all again!

Today let’s enjoy the wonderful work of Warren Kremer with a story featuring Mr. Kremer’s finest creation, Stumbo the Giant.

Warren Kremer went to work for Harvey Comics in 1948 and stayed put for 34 years. He created the Harvey house style, drew thousands of covers, and defined or co-defined the look of many of Harvey’s marque characters; Richie Rich, Little Audrey, Casper, Hot Stuff, Spooky, and many others including the subject of today’s post – Stumbo! It is impossible to think of Harvey Comics without thinking, first, of Warren Kremer.

I believe Stumbo was Mr. Kremer’s finest work over a lifetime of great work. With Stumbo, he always made perspective look so natural and easy. These stories all come from Devil Kids Starring Hot Stuff No. 54 (May 1972). Enjoy!

Isn't Stumbo great, kids? And Dr. Cesspool always gives me the shivers! I think Dr. Cesspool is the greatest villian in the Harvey universe!

Coming up next, some more from Warren Kremer and my favorite Harvey artist, Howie Post!

I will see you all again very soon. Until then, I hope you are all warm, safe, and happy!
