Look Out, Dagwood!



Here are a couple of fun Harvey Comics covers from 1955 featuring Chic Young's immortal Bumsteads. It really clever how these covers which are dated the same month use the same art and spring off it. Note the little head of Dagwood in the box next to the Harvey logo. Nice detail. Must've looked very intriguing sitting on the stands together.

    1. Me too. That must've been the point. While "collectors" like us were not so much a part of the market back then, still you'd think anyone who bought Blondie was most likely going to get Dagwood too.
