Otto Messmer is one of my favorite cartoonists, and probably one of my top favorites as well. I love his style very much. Thank you so much, Sherm!

Do you have any Cliff Sterrett comics by the way? I like him as well, but haven't really seen as much of his work as I would like.

Thanks, Sherm!

This is such great stuff Sherm! LOVE the writing on that Cigar Promoter story!

The simple stuff like having Felix get to the front of the line by running through a perfectly orchestrated opening in all of the applicant's legs is nothing shy of brilliant comedic planning!

I always loved the short and simple stories like that of Felix and Heckle and Jeckle.

Thanks for sharing Sherm!
