Quote: I've never read Tillie, but Tessie (as well as most of the other Timely titles) is pretty good. The real problem with My Friend Irma (and later My Girl Pearl) is that the only joke is that Irma is amazingly stupid. And it's repeated over and over and over and...you get the idea. The other Timely titles are much more readable.
Thanks, I will endeavor to keep Tillie and Tessie separate in my mind! The Tillie was just very uninspired. I generally like teen-type stuff. (And we are absolutely nuts about Katy Keene over here.)
