Cartoons By Colon?





I've never found any confirmed credits on these cartoon gag book covers, but the main images sure looks like the luscious artwork of Ernie Colon to me. At the time there were being published I think Mr.Colon was also busily working for Harvey Comics on their kiddie line. Yikes!

  1. A couple are signed but clicking the pics doesn't actually making them bigger so i can't read it. That second one you show sure does look like Colon's work to me but the rest don't at all.

    1. This is the highest resolution I found. I tried looking closer too and couldn't make out the name. I agree the second one is the strongest candidate, but the first seems awfully strong too. And that's the same name as the third one. The fourth one is the weakest, but I see that Colon touch especially in the tilt of the heads of the women.

  2. Agree that #2 appears to be Colon.
    The faces and hair in number three had me thinking of those Warren Spanish artists (leaning toward Jose Gonzalez), though it was probably to early for them to be appearing in American publications.
    #1 and 4 are mystifying, though #4 seems familiar (not Colon).
