Another fun comics and cartooning blog to check out:

I really dig Ger's articles on comic strip advertisements.Back in the 1950's many famous comic strip artistsworked for big advertising agencies to create ads for all kinds of products.(See Sam Spade Wildroot Hair Tonic Ads by Lou Fine).

There are also some really nice articles about cartoonist Bud Blake, along with heaps of great artwork that's probably gone unseen for decades. Check out these gems:

You'll really want to look through all the posts -- you never know what you'll find. Like this cartoon advertisement for Vaseline by Hagar's Dik Browne...


I'm so glad that Ger has saved this stuff and put it all on his blog so we can all enjoy it!
