Sunday Funnies!

Summer Sunday's...waiting for the "thunk!" of the Sunday paper hitting the screen door, running outdoors and unraveling the massive log of the news of the world! Unfolding the 4 color wrapper and tucking it under your arm as you deliver the boring ads, editorials and sports pages to the rest of the family and you race back to the front porch to splay the true treasures of the delivery out and plop onto your belly to get lost in it all!

A time before most of us remember...but all of us have fond feelings for. Re-live them NOW!

From January 3, 1954, Al Capp's world of Dogpatch continues to be plagued by the mysterious powers of "The Wrecker"! No one knows how her strange power over men works, but I think being drawn by Frank Frazetta has something to do with it!

February 21, 1926 Cliff Sterrett's art deco "Polly and Her Pals" finds Pa in a winter wonderland and a "topper" featuring "Damon and Pythias!

July 21, 1935, George Herriman's "Krazy Kat" get's Joe Stork in trouble...and if I'm not mistaken, that may be Herriman in the first panel instigating the whole thing!

January 27, 1935 and in Milton Caniff's "Terry and the Pirates", Terry Lee and Pat Ryan find themselves jumping from the frying pan into the fire as they're captured from the pirate junk guessed it...pirates!

Talk to you soon.
