I don't think this one has been shown.

Four Color 893, Jim Bowie



Thanks to Scrooge!

This one's been posted, but not my copy!

I'll try to concentrate on covers that haven't been posted yet, but this is the earliest in the batch I just got, second oldest that I own, and I'm pumped about it. (Yes, it's already on the funny animal thread.)

Four Color 21, Oswald the Rabbit.
First solo cover, as far as I know. Certainly his first Four Color.



Look at those curly ears!

GCD credits Dan Gormley ? (Pencils) Dan Gormley ? (Inks) ?, not a name I'm very familiar with.

Three more not on the list

Four Color 361 Nov-51 Santa Claus Funnies
GCD credits Irving Tripp (?) for the cover. I'd say little doubt about it -- certainly one of the Little Lulu artists.



Four Color 507 Oct-53 Oswald the Rabbit



Four Color 593 Oct-54 Oswald the Rabbit



I had a heck of a time trying to get the yellows on the Oswald scans to look like the books themselves.

Five more that have already been posted long ago, but I'm just happy to have copies in any condition.

Four Color 39 1944 Oswald the Rabbit
A beater with a great cover! Are those dancing candies and cookies proto-shiverbones or what?



Four Color 67 1945 Oswald the Rabbit
I think Paratrooper posted this one as one of the weirdest parachute covers out there. I like it, and it's a respectable copy.



Four Color 72 1945 Raggedy Ann and Andy
4th Raggedy Ann issue. Who drew it? Aren't those great bugs? A lot of Kelly in them. Could it be his pencils or split duties?



The back cover is fun too.



Four Color 87 Jan-45 Fairy Tale Parade
Cover is credited to Dan Noonan (?) -- seems right to me.
The Walt Kelly story 'Tiny Folk and the Dragon' is a knockout!



Sensitive viewers may wish to avert their eyes for the last one.

Four Color 103 Apr-46 Easter with Mother Goose
Utterly classic Kelly bunny cover! Too bad it's such a beater, but you get what you pay for.



Jack

I really like this one Jack. Such a fun cover.

BTW, in reference to your earlier post, I have trouble with yellow cover scans as well. Since I collect lots of yellow covers, I struggle with it quite often.

Thanks.

With my scanner and primitive software, yellows are hell to match. Any tiny nick or stain tends to show up as a reddish blob, any foxing looks like the book belongs in the dumpster. Usually I can lower the saturation and twiddle the green channel a little, but that wasn't quite doing the job tonight. Solid reds often get a mottled appearance -- I keep meaning to ask Scrooge why his reds look so solid. Blues and greens are relatively easy!

The poor, neglected Four Color thread.

Another batch came in from the seller everyone (except me) loves to hate -- Mile High Comics.

Here's #73, a 64-year-old Gerber 6 in presentable, solid, good condition for about $10 shipped.



No time to scan any others tonight.

Jack

Many years ago, probably when I was in Grammar School I took out a succession of books from our county library that reprinted classic comic strips. There seemed to have been a bit of a publishing flurry of these books in the early seventies. Anyway, I got to read some great stuff, Popeye, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon Little Orphan Annie,, the Toonerville Trolley and this odd little collection called the Gumps.

For those of you who are not aware of this strip, it was quite a phenomenon in its day and in fact was the first comic strip to ever kill off a major character. The strip was pretty amazing in its depiction of the ordinary, probably the reason it was so popular with so many.

Most of those old books are hard to come by these days, but if you ever get a chance to read a collection of the Gumps, give it a go!

Father Gump seemed to live an ordinary life ...




but Chester was out there fighting mad scientists


and dinosaurs.


Scans from Popular 22 and Gump 2. Cover signed by Gus Edson.

This one has surely been posted but here it is again.
Four Color 226 -- the cannibal cover!
What the heck is Porky Pig doing with a ham around his house?



I like the ghost covers.

Jack
