On this date back in '62 'twas a Sunday. And NOW, thanks to our Friend-in-Kelly 'Hun', we can fill in the blanks with a semblance of Sunday strips derived from his collection of flotsam and jetsam of original art scans and less than perfect digital scans of old microfiche.
I've been derelict in not sharing previous Sundays from that collection for January and February. Should I do a post catching up with those for all you completists out there?
And, as always, thanks HUN, for your commitment to Kelly!
I dedicate this post to Frits van der Waa, in Amsterdam, not because this strip is associated with him, but because he periodically sends me emails of appreciation and encouragement (his comments don't seem to have functionality on this site).
Today was a Sunday in 1962, so with the absence of having that strip, here is a Mad Magazine spread where Pogo, Albert and Churchy make a non-speaking appearance—all characters drawn by the master comics emulator Wally Wood.
My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
I AM POSTING THESE IMAGES WITH THE NOTION THAT I AM DOING SO WITH A NON-PROFIT AND EDUCATIONAL 'FAIR USE' MOTIVE, REGARDING RESPECTIVE COPYRIGHTS. ANYONE DOWNLOADING AND USING THESE IMAGES FOR ANY COMMERCIAL USE WOULD BE IN VIOLATION OF RESPECTIVE COPYRIGHTS, AND DOES NOT HAVE MY APPROVAL FOR SUCH USE. PLEASE SHARE IN EDUCATION AND DON'T TRY TO MAKE MONEY FROM IT WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORITY.
