Thursday Comics - Lost Carl Barks and Alfred Andriola and "The Yankee Rangers"

Here's more of the amazing articles featured in "Nemo: the Classic Comics Library" #1 dated June 1983.

A single page devoted to a then-newly discovered piece of work by the great Carl Barks. At the time Carl was still with us here in the land of the living and had recently started to achieve praise for his decades of anonymous work as "The GOOD Duck Artist" in Walt Disney comic books. I'm glad he got to hear the "Thanks" of fans while he was still around.

And a tribute to a forgotten strip that only ran for a few weeks in 1942 called "The Yankee Rangers" by the prolific, if not widely known, Alfred Andriola. What a wonderful time to read the "Funnies" it must have been, when even the unsuccessful entries to the comics pages were this damn solid!

I'll conclude Nemo #1 tomorrow. See y'all then!
