"The Brownies" by Don Gunn!

Good afternoon, Kids! So nice to visit with you all again!

Today, let’s go for a hayride with the Brownies, curtesy of artist, Don Gunn!

The Brownies, in case anyone was wondering, where characters (imaginary little sprites) created by Canadian artist, Palmer Cox in 1887. Dell Comics picked up the theme, and Mr. Don Gunn was the principal artist (among others) that handled their stories throughout the fifties. His work on this title was always wonderful and was influenced by the great Walt Kelly.

Mr. Gunn’s work here is appropriately rich and lush ala Kelly. Don Gunn was one of the great Four Color/Dell craftsman and professionals that did an absolute ton of work through the ‘40s and ‘50s. All his work strikes me as eye candy! Oh, he did this luscious cover as well. Enjoy!! This comes from Four Color - The Brownies No. 398 (May-1952).

Coming up next, I believe it's high time to visit again some work by one of Harvey's greatest artists, Warren Kremer!

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

--Your friend, Mykal
