Nemo #7: Clare Briggs' "Danny Dreamer" and Zack Mosley's "Smilin' Jack"

"Nemo: the Classic Comics Library" fills out it's first anniversary issue #7 with a few of it's regular features and a spotlight on a classic adventure strip.

"Smilin' Jack" by Zack Mosley was an aviator strip of the 1930's and 40's. It had radio, movie serial and comic book spin-offs and was really quite popular if not generally overlooked by a great number of comic strip historians.

A very fun and energetic strip that as "Nemo" points out, was infused with great fun by a man who loved writing and drawing it.

Continuing it's series of "Fantasy in the Comics", Nemo takes a good look at Clare Briggs and some of his work including "Danny Dreamer".

Talk to you soon!

Nemo was a terrific magazine. I collected each issue as it came out, and pored over every article.

Same here Pappy, and ever since it's always had an easily accessable place on my bookshelf. It's been great reviewing them as a whole for these posts.

Thanks for stopping by!
