Well my dealings with computer gremlins continues as last week my computer died a horrible death.  :'(

Luckily, my wife is a sweetie, she let me use her laptop to edit Billy the Kid Adventure Magazine 007 from Toby, c2c at the ftp.

Big thanks to bluejeff for the raws.  My new computer comes this week, so hopefully I'll be able to get back to my scanning programme soon enough  :)  I'm pretty excited to see how fast a new machine can slice and dice comics in photoshop...

Cheers,

Darwin

Thanks Darwin, it's now up!

GL with the new machine - I've been considering a new one myself since my second machine for editing died on me a few months ago... but spending $ isn't a thing I like to do very much.

I love my new computer! Photoshop cs4 opens in around 10 seconds versus 3 minutes on my last computer, a welcome change. Thanks for getting me the ftp info I needed last night so I can upload again, Yoc, you sure help keep things running smooth around here.

Now at the FTP:

Keen Teens 01 (NN on cover) (1945.Life's Romances)(Darwination-Mccoy)


Thanks to McCoy for a great edit of my poor copy of this interesting comic.  Featuring Frank Sinatra and Van Johnson on the cover and inside covers as well as Clair Voyant, Dottie Dripple, Rocky, Gertie O' Grady and Sissy in addition to a photo article and Sugar and Spice column material from The Chicago Tribune.


Geronimo 002 (1951.Avon) (On the Warpath)


Here's the last scan we needed of this Avon run. The comic features a Kinstler cover and frontispiece and leads with two John Forte stories.  The main attraction in my eyes, though, is the Kit West story, very strange indeed.  Here's the splash (can anybody identify the artist for me?):


Cheers and enjoy,

Darwin

Kit West is by Jill Elgin, Darwin.
Compare with her work at Harvey at Speed. There is a SLIGHT possibility that she's working on Kit West with Gus Schrotter.

FWIW. (|:{>

Not that I've ever seen, narf,
and I believe I have seen MOST of the FH books. She did Girl Commandos and Twinkle Twins and perhaps a couple of other stories at Harvey in the mid-'40s. Other than that, this Kit West (and the one in the following issue) in Geronimo comprise most of her comics work. She did some kids book illustrations (I have her version of Little Women) and is supposed to have worked for Parents Comics in the early '40s. That's all the credits we KNOW about.

Thanks for the identification, Jim. I'm still always startled when I come across a woman artist in golden age comics, but the more I think about it, I have to wonder if women had more opportunity in the strips and in the golden age than they would have later on in the 60s and 70s (in mainstream comics at least).  I enjoyed Elgin's art in these Geronimo issues (the Kit West story in the next issue is a real hoot, thanks for mentioning it), so I think I'll track down some of her illustration work to see what it looks like.

Cheers,

Darwin

Actually, as Cat Yronwode and Trina Robbins noted in WOMEN IN THE COMICS, a lot of female cartoonists did come in during World War II.  It was a "Rosie the Riveter" kind of situation...since male cartoonists were being drafted (or enlisting), somebody had to be found to draw or write the comics, and women weren't in danger of being drafted.  Apparently, Fiction House (or, more properly, the Iger Shop) took on a lot of women artists and even some women scripters.  (Toni Blum had been a writer there since the Eisner days and Ruth Roche may have been, too.)  I can't and won't try for a roll call but you can find them if you want.

A really EARLY Fawcett from Darwin and McCoy has just been added to the site.

Quote
I upped that Capt. Billy's Whiz Bang to my folder (a McCoy edit, btw, he's my edit workhorse these days).  As far as any information goes, I'm pretty new to the pub myself, but here's the best links I've found:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fawcett_Publications        <--begins with info on it

http://www.aboutcomics.com/cbwb.html  <---blurb from about comics re: the one reprint issue they did.

http://www.compedit.com/whiz_bang.htm   <----a short academic sort of survey of the mag


When I scanned it, I was bummed there were no pictures or toons, but I was surprised to find myself laughing the whole way through.  The language is incredibly rich - a mix of high and low, and some of the jokes are terribly funny.  PC sensibilities might get wounded because of some racist material, but I get tired of saying things like that because it's just History, warts and all  Tongue  I also like the idea that this little roughshod publication launched an empire, Fawcett's mags from the 30s are amazingly well done, and, of course, their comics are a great mix of fun and intelligent stories...

Cheers,
Darwin

Our thanks to Darwin for sharing something I'd only heard about in the 'history books' of comics.
Enjoy!

Spirit Section 1944-02-13 (Philadelphia Record).  It's been awhile, but I managed to sneak in a golden age scan tonight. I still haven't dared watch the new Spirit movie, but it's inevitable - like a moth to the flame.  This issue features a killer ichthyologist in The Spirit as well as back up from Lady Luck and Mr. Mystic.

At the FTP for your enjoyment, a Fox  ;)

Here's the Canadian edition of My Secret Story 27 from 1950.  I really miss the pink on the inside front cover on these fox reprints but I guess the one trade off is that there is less cover bleed because of no color on the inside and perhaps a thicker stock... Enjoy!
