More Goosemyer

More "Goosemyer" by Brant Parker and Don Wilder.

The first one in particular features criticism of Ronald Reagan. Imagine what it would've been like if someone uploaded that strip right after he died.

Don Wilder, co-creator of Crock, passed away few days ago.In his honor, I thought I'd post samples of his short-lived Goosemyer strip, which he co-created with Brant Parker. It ran from 1980 to 1984.

Bad Baby

Patrick McDonnell is best known for his daily strip Mutts, which runs in over 500 newspapers thru King Features Syndicate.

Before starting Mutts, however, he did a monthly strip for Parents magazine called Bad Baby, which ran from 1984 to at least around 1997.

The local university's library has a bound copy of a bunch of magazines, Parents being one of them.. I xeroxed some of the Bad Baby strips here.

Unfortunately, these are all in black and white; they were originally printed as is from Patrick's watercolor, so you're not seeing everything here.

Sibling Revelry

Thanks to Mr. Martin himself, here are additional Sibling Revelry strips. These are from the later part of its run.

Holy Mole

Holy Mole is a delightful little strip drawn by Rick Hotton. Minimal lineart but still beautifully drawn.

I first heard about this strip when Doonesbury went on a hiatus (one of the papers added this strip as a replacement). A good decision on the paper's part, in my opinion.

The website only contains few samples. Hopefully, more will be posted soon.

A little light on Jack Moore

Okay, one other thing about Kelly & Duke. I just recieved an email from a person named John Neel with an interesting discovery: a political cartoon by Jack Moore.

I have no doubt to believe that this is from the same artist behind Kelly. The artstyle is different, but the artist's signature matches with the one found in his strip.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what newspaper Moore drew for and when, but it does at least shed some light on his cartoon career.
