Meet Comics McCormick -- The World's #1 Comic Book Fan!

I recently found these strips inside a scan of The May 1947 of EC Comics' "Fat and Slat." These were "Pre-Trend" ECs, before William Gaines inherited the company from his father. These stories are a real treat for Golden Age Comics fans!! Enjoy!

I tried twice to leave no avail. This time for sure!

The comic is great. I'm a big Ed Wheelan fan. So straightforward, charming, and fun.

Weren't there other comic characters whose "gimmick" was that they loved comic books? I think there was one called "supersnipe" who was "the boy with the most comic books in the world."

Probably a "hip" commentary on their times, seeing as comics were only 7 years old as a phenomenon when this comic was made. (The internet is older today than comic books were at the time this comic was drawn.)

Is there a Sherm blog where you put Sherm drawings? I'd love to see it! BEcause I demanded it!

best wishes,

I had never heard of Ed Wheelan before I saw these I did a little searching and added a link to the post:

Total grooviosity, Sherm. While I've been a big Ed Wheelan fan for quite some time, I've never seen this story. Many thanks for posting it--
take care,

Wow! Great to hear from you, Stephen! I haven't talked to you since The Ren & Stimpy Show days! Anyway, I just posted the second Comics McCormick story from Fat & Slat #2. I'm so glad that people have been posting oddball little comic-book treasures on their blogs, so I just decided to join in the fun!

Talk to you soon...
