Kurtzman's Pig Tales

Here's a Pig Tales story by Harvey Kurtzman, from Funny Comic-Tunes #23 (Fall 1946).

I don't know if Kurtzman did many funny animal comics besides Pig Tales, but his stylized cartooning works really well here. Sure, the story isn't as funny as his later work, but a lot of familiar elements (especially in the characters' poses) are in place. And you have to admire how almost every panel is interesting, visually.

Thank you! I've been looking for this comic for, like, forEVER! I think Kurtzman's PIGTALES stories are fascinating. Sort of expanded Hey Look!s. I put a link to your blog up at my relatively new blog, Cole's Comics. Thanks again for the great comics!
