The Blankety Blank Piggy Bank!

As promised, my friends, another great story by Howie Post from Devil Kids Starring Hot Stuff No. 54 (May 1972)!

Today's story from Mr. Post features a ravenous piggy bank imbued with supernatural, gluttonous powers by Seymour the Sorcerer! I know, I know, it sounds crazy! But watch how the ingenious Mr. Post makes it work.

I love this story! In this tale, Howie Post puts on full display his great skill at character creation. Each character is so unique and well-developed. The aforementioned Seymour the Sorcerer is a fine example, but even better is Hot Stuff's Uncle Smokey. I love Uncle Smokey and relish every appearance. He's so hot-headed, but he loves his nephew!

I just adore Howie Post! Next up, a real treat. The Big Blog is going back in the archives to the 1940s and the great work of George Carlson. If that name is unfamiliar to you, kids, you are in for a treat!

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

    1. And a wonderful strip it was! It had a pretty good run, too. Thanks for commenting, Sir, and stopping by. Good to hear from you again.
