Amazing!

While looking through LI'L ABNER #68 (Issue 8) my "ABSURD" entry last week,
I ran across this classic CAPTAIN TOOTSIE page.

The cover kind of reminds me of "The Little Rascals." So cool.

@esaravo These weekly SPIRIT SECTIONS were included in a tab size 16 page "FUN BOOK"
in the Philadelphia SUNDAY BULLETIN which I would pick every time I would visit my
Grandparents.

I've come back a couple of times to look at this artwork. It's really quite mesmerizing. One detail that I found caught my eye is the rounded ceiling on the interior of the Diner, staying consistent with the rounded roof on the previous exterior view.

@martymann
Marty, comics were so much more awesome back in that time. It would be awesome to pick up my favorite comics for a dime each.
My dad told me when he was a kid (born in 42') he would get a quarter on Friday and go to the drive in movie, get a drink and popcorn and still have a dime left over for a comic book maybe???
Wish he would have kept his comics.. lol..
