Ain't It Awful How We Talks?

More important than ever in these days: practice random kindness!

A Big Fat Kiss to the Very First Miss on the Very First Day of May

Careful! Unsolicited big fat kisses can ultimately cause you to resign from Congress, among other repercussions . . .

Longest Comic Strip in the World

And now for something completely different . . .

Little Cheerful Charlie Chums

This page is a little bit rough, but it gives you a pretty good view of the Sunday strip published on this date in 1962. I love that first panel line-up . . . well, heck . . . I love all the panels.

Dagnag the Dagnaggin' Dagnaggers!

Porkypine IS a ol' prickle pear, isn't he . . .

Actually, so was Kelly . . .

The Joke is Gone too Far

I really concur that the joke has gone too far . . .

Oh, To Be a Easter Bunny

For fans of Albert (of which I count myself among), this is a perty fun performance, specially the seegar in the bunny suit routine.

All Yo' Problems Razed

I don't think I've seen Miss Loubelline and Cousin Pinhead before. A pinhead before Zippy.

Something to fill in on a 1962 Saturday away from continuity.

Fierce Lookin' Callabashio

Like I say, the struggle of self . . .

April 20, 1962

Gotta Think of a Epitaph . . .

Throughout these current strips, and on so many levels, Churchy is epitomizing the struggle of self. 

Also, as I've said before, I would collect and appreciate Kelly art even if all he drew was furniture and stuff.

Defend the Honor of Miss Dawn Quixote

It appears we're back on the air . . . at least for awhile . . .

Gole-Brinkin', Lily-Livered Poop-Com-Nins

Have you noticed that every few panels Churchy's fake mustachio disappears and then appears again? I don't know if this was 'carelessness' on the part of Kelly, or he was just having fun with the surrealism inherent in the cartooning medium (ala Krazy Kat).

Fact? FACT!

Just so you know, I'm having troubles again with this Blog site, giving me all sorts of trouble signing in and such. So, until I figure out the problem, I might be off from here for a while. I'll catch up with you when I can!

Long Live Kelly (He certainly loved HIS seegars)!

Wave of the Future

Referencing Barry Goldwater, Kelly speaks to our present. And Toffler's 'Third Wave' was still 18 years into the future.

A Real Screamer

I've never been in such a crunch with deadlines in all my professional years as an illustrator, so once again, and always, please pardon my lack of daily posts.
