Beautiful. evocative work. (Too bad about those d_mn'd mushrooms, though.)

Fun stuff, forgotten how much I enjoy reading these kinds of comics.

Do you know of any publications out now that'd be good to pick up?

That last comic in red is supreme. Might have to use that simple palette for something. Thanks for posting, Sherm!

Sherm: I've always been astounded with how much expression Messmer could get with so few lines. Just astonishing and very beautiful. Must find some. -- Mykal

Mesmer's art is just so fanciful and fun! He's even got a littel E.C. Seegar mojo going in a few panels with some of his characters. How great to see a classic like this. I'm afraid today in the pc culture the panel with the African American guys (carrying the dresses for the wicked step Mother) and the Magic Midgets (the, ahem, Heightened Challenged spiritually atuned).. might be censored.
thanks for sharing Sherm!

Great! A Felix comic book collection would be amazing, eh?
