Percy Pelican – The H. Chambers Comic Book Madness Continues

Last week I posted an Eddie Elephant comic book story by H. Chambers, from Hi-Ho Comics #1 (back in 1946). Here’s another trippy tale, Percy Pelican, which features my favorite art from the whole comic!Percy Pelican funny animal comic book by EC H Ellis Holly Chambers Army soldier recruit Percy Pelican funny animal comic book by EC H Ellis Holly Chambers Percy Pelican visits doctor funny animal cartoon comic book by EC H Ellis Holly Chambers Percy Pelican gets a shot with syringe from doctor funny animal comic book by EC H Ellis Holly Chambers Percy Pelican is a soldier in cartoon boot camp funny animal comic book by EC H Ellis Holly Chambers cartoon boot camp soldier KP washing dishes Percy Pelican funny animal comic book by EC H Ellis Holly Chambers

points for the needle - finally we get to share the in-joke!

I love the section where he's fallen down, with the sun coming over the horizon.

I like the captions at the bottom..."came the dawn."

You've convinced me to like this drugged-up maniac. Reading his work is a very surreal experience.

Glad you guys like it! It makes me happy to look at because it's such an unusual (and well-crafted) break from the "standard" style of funny animal comics. It literally looks like it belongs in an issue of Zap Comix!

This guy was definitely an influence on Milton Knight.

Wow, that does look pretty good. Thanks!

First Fletcher Hanks and now this!

I remember reading an interview of Robert Crumb where he mentions some comic books he read as a child with funny animal characters that looked like Donald Duck and Bugs Bunny but had other names and were completely whacked out and doing the craziest stuff.. looks like Chalmers could be the creator here.

Sherm: Could this be inked by Rudy Palais? I see his name on the splash panel. I have some stuff by Ellis Holly Chambers (some I have posted, some not) that look the same as this post with regard to drawing and character design (pencils) - but the inking is much different.

Whatever, this post is a knockout.
