Comicon Mutts 2019

Patrick McDonnell has done it again! For years now he has devoted his Mutts comic strip to comics-related gags during the week of the San Diego Comicon.

Please do enjoy these fun strips that I harvested from last week's newspapers and, if those are enough for you, here are some strips from 2014 and some from 2015.

Hooray for Mutts!

What, Me Bisque?

Probably everybody was saddened by the news last week that Mad Magazine is being cancelled. To try to cheer you up I'm here to tell something in the Mad orbit that most collectors never knew.

There was a bust of Alfred E. Neuman available by mail order from those usual idiots at Mad! Two different sizes, even!

The price was a quite-reasonable $1 (small) or $2 (medium). Sorry, no large. Down below you can see the house ad and order form as printed on the inside back cover of 1960's Mad #54.

Every so often, one of these statues will pop up on ebay (however for a little bit more than $1 or $2 these days) and you might like to try getting one. It may be me bidding against you though because I've never owned one of these but would like to!
