Groundhog Day is on Sunday, so to celebrate, here's a beautiful comic book story from veteran animator Ken Hultgren...
Brand-new high-res scans from “Tack’s Cartoon Tips for the Aspiring Cartoonist” (1923) — I’ll be posting the whole book on my “How to Draw Cartoons” page at https://www.facebook.com/CartoonTips
Have you ever read those amazing Super Mouse comics by Milt Stein? Well, these Super-Cat comics are nothing like those. They’re clumsily drawn and the story is so stupid that it’s charming.
OK…to be fair, this Super-Cat is really just a parody place-holder than a real character like Super Mouse was. Super-Cat’s total obliviousness is kinda fun…
I’m just fascinated by the clunky off-kilter low-rent second-string execution of this story. The first three panels are so incredibly dopey that I was hooked right away Enjoy!
from Super-Cat Volume 1, Number 4
