Goodbye...and hello again

For a variety of reasons I'm moving this blog, beginning a new volume of postings.

You can go to the new blog, all set up, shiny and new, with a posting of the entire first issue of CREEPY, scanned from my copy, bought off the stands when it also was shiny and brand new.

Hairy Green Eyeball 3

Look for our snappy new logo.

Remember to bookmark the site. This blog, as well as the original Hairy Green Eyeball site, will still be available so you can dig through the archives. There's a lot of great stuff there, so help yourselves. I will also be checking back periodically for any comments you care to leave on any of the postings.

Thanks again! HGE

More cartoons from Colliers

Here is another set of cartoons from COLLIERS magazine, collected in the 1946 book, I MEET SUCH PEOPLE, by COLLIERS cartoon editor, Gurney Williams. These are by some of the greatest cartoonists of that era.

I'm slow to get around to this, because I showed the first set of cartoons in June, 2010. You can find it here.

Hooray for Horror-Wood

I don't think enough people, even Wallace Wood fans, say enough about his ability to letter. The title lettering from these three early MAD features showcase how exciting his display lettering could be. I've enlarged the titles so you can get a better look at his intricate design work.

The artwork in the stories is great, too. His work with gray tones, specifically his Craftint work (originals shown with the missile pages from MAD #47) was very skillful, and gave his work an added depth.
