While I decide whether to post more of my own comics, here's some fun with Gran'pa Feeble to pass the time!

"Operation Gumdrop" from Tubby #24 (Sept.-Oct. 1957):














"Circus Daze" from Tubby #31 (Nov.-Dec., 1958):

What a great stories really are, Doug!
And the beginning of the first one is absolutely brilliant!
I never get fed up with Feeb. He stole our heart, uh?
Regarding your own comics:
Don't hesitate to show them here (or everywhere). Sure is a pleasure.
As I usually say here:
Thanks a bunch for sharing!

Gabriel - I don't get tired of Feeb either! I have a certain fondness for funny characters (like Feeb and Ambrose) who aren't the "stars" of their books.

Anonymous - Mongombo is on schedule, really! That is to say, I should finish it sometime next year.

I always enjoy all the Tubby and Lulu stories, especially from the 50s. As for your comics, of course you should show them here.

Superkatt by Dan Gordon





Dan Gordon is a great cartoonist. His comics are lively and violent and crude and a little mean-spirited...exactly what a good cartoon should be. I love his organic panel borders as well...so much so that I fully intend to steal them.

Cartoonist/storyboard artist Sherm Cohen has quite a lot of DanG goodies at his blog, including the biography he wrote for the Comics Journal. Read it at Cartoon Snap.

There's a great SuperKatt story as well over at Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine: Number 506.

Giggle Comics #24 (December, 1945):



















Here's a bonus! An advertisement for Milt Gross Funnies, from Giggle Comics #46:

Little Ambrose by Bob Bolling





A while back I posted "Camera Caper", the second story in the Little Ambrose one-shot by Bob Bolling. You can read that story right here.

This time we have the other two stories from that issue, also by Bolling. Poor Little Ambrose! The Good ol' Gang can't be rid of him fast enough. But they're perfectly willing to take his money and exploit his inventiveness. Small wonder, then, that Ambrose apparently moved far away from Riverdale well before his tormentors reached High School.

"Spook Spree" and "Bus Fuss" are from Little Ambrose #1 (September, 1958):
