Another Ed-U-Card game, with flip animation on the back of the deck. Play-wise, this game (called Casper and his TV Pals) is functionally identical to the Popeye deck, with Harvey Comics characters swapped out to replace the Thimble Theater bunch.
Among the characters selected for use in the game is Little Audrey, who was created by Paramount Pictures’ Famous Studios to replace the Little Lulu series. She later starred in a comic book series first published by St. john, and later by Harvey Comics.
Found! Perhaps the only existing Craig Boldman/Joe Kubert art collaboration.
I was one of the early students at The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey, and as such, would occasionally be treated/subjected to the terrifying advent of Joe Kubert, comic book legend, looking over my shoulder while I was still trying to find my way around a piece of drawing paper and which end of a pencil was up. And once in a while, he’d excuse me from my chair and say, “Let me show you…”
Here’s your chance to grab a copy of Cap’n Catnip #2, written by me and drawn by the Cap’n’s co-creator, Tim Fuller! Backup atory by me and the great Daryll Collins! It will be waiting for you at my booth, #227, at the Cincinnati Comic Expo! Click for details and I’ll tell you more about Cap’n Catnip later.
I had a great time this past weekend at All AmeriCon in Youngstown, OH. Here’s a glimpse of the goings-on courtesy of The Business Journal of Youngstown. I look forward to returning to this show!
Date With Debbie was a comic book title published by DC Comics in the late 1960’s. Very much in the Archie mold, this drawing was a commission for my friend Chris Lambert. It was used in his great new book, ‘My Favorite Year In Comics…1968.’
Hop over to my commissions page or send me an e-mail and request an art commission of your own!

While continuing to sort through boxes that were packed away after the house flood, I discovered this page from the Dayton Daily News, August 16, 2004, announcing the opening of Comics and Games Emporium — How I got it or why I saved it, I can’t guess, unless it was just my custom at the time to file away articles about any area comic book activity that I stumbled across.
The gentleman in the picture, the owner of the Dayton comics shop, is Jim Broughton, whom I wouldn’t properly meet until a decade later. Jim and I became friends at the bi-monthly ASH Comics and Toy Shows in Indianapolis a few years ago, and until I ran across this newspaper clipping, I never connected him to the comics shop in the story.
I also never did get to Comics and Games Emporium — and apparently I missed my chance — but Jim Broughton, with Dan Taylor, now operate a great store, Jim & Dan’s Comics & Collectibles in West Alexandria, OH, and also host a quarterly comics convention at Wright State University which I enjoy and recommend (the most recent one was this past Sunday!).
Today is also Jim’s birthday, and I wish him a happy one and many more!
