I was inspired by shiverbones to purchase this.

 

Holiday Comics #7, Animal on Parade

 

HAPPYFUCKINFUNTIME.jpg

 

For me, this is an unusual purchase. I don't collect funny animals nor do I have anything to do with westerns, much less rodeos.

 

I liked the busy & colorful cover. I wouldn't have paid any notice if it hadn't been for the wonderfully playful covers of shiverbones

 

THX.

 

L.B. Cole was the tipping ingredient.

 

An aside: Someone from Emigre magazine should pick up on these types of lettering and develop/kern a font to sell to some of these ignorant,

(by that I mean unknowing) masses of modern magazine art editors.

These kinds of typography are straight out of those "Trademarks of the 30's & 40's" and "Trademarks of the 50's & 60's" books.

 

Collect & collate the data, write the book, tweak it, write the code, copyright it and you've got an ebay perpetual motion money machine.

Anyone have a scan of MASK #2? I wanted to show someone what it looks like and my copy is missing a piece of the lower left corner. I'm shocked that there isn't one posted here!

 

On a happy note...

 

This week I've picked up:

 

- Mask 1

- True to LIfe Romances # 17 & #19!

 

I was on a Cole "hold" for a while, but now I'm back baby!!!

This post just caught my eye.

 

Those two splashes are identical to the first and second stories in Frisky Fables 4, Sep 1948, which I just bought a few days ago. (A beater copy)

I wonder whether the whole book is cover-to-cover reprint. What's the date of this Holiday Comics issue?

I think what makes this cover stand out as a better than average LB Cole, is that look of disdain that he captured on the devil's face! (thumbs u
