Nemo #3: Billy DeBeck and "Parlor, Bedroom & Sink"

"Nemo: the Classic Comics Library" #3 reminds us that "Barney Google", "Snuffy Smith" and "Sparkplug" were NOT the only comic strip icons created by master cartoonist Billy DeBeck.

Hovering over the Barney Google Sunday page were "Bunker Hill, Jr." and the rest of the cast of "Parlor, Bedroom & Sink".

I think this should also count as a precursor to "Bed, Bath & Beyond" myself...



...and the good folks at "Nemo" learned the benefits of turning the magazine on it's side so we can see, and actually read the comics. Enjoy an oft-forgot classic!

Parlor, Bedroom & Sink has to be one of the wackiest comic strips in the history of the medium. I used to run across it in back issues of my grandfather's Good Old Days, so these brought back a lot of memories. Thanks for posting them, Jeff!

DeBeck's stuff was pure cartoony goodness for sure. Amazing this stuff tastes as good as candy but feels as nutritional as it can gets as well.
