"Albert and the Noah Count Ark" by Walt Kelly






Some more of Mr. Kelly's comics just in time for the weekend! This time around featuring the second appearance of the honorable Cap'n Churchy la Femme.

Poor little Francis Ferdinand Van de Dandy! He and his fancy shoes must have been just passing through the ol’ Swamp!

Here is “Albert and the Noah Count Ark” from Animal Comics #14 (May 1945):
