Last year I told you to go see a short-lived strip by Stan Lee and one of the most famous Archie artists, Dan DeCarlo.
It was titled WILLIE LUMPKIN. If you're a Marvel nerd, then you know that Willie Lumpkin is the Manhattan mailman who delivers mail to the Baxter Building, the headquarters of the Fantastic Four.
Stan Lee reused the name for this gentle humorous comic strip. There are no superheroes or monsters. Just sitcom humor drawn in a bigfoot cartoon style.
This week, Ger Apeldoorn has a batch of Sunday WILLIE LUMPKIN strips by Stan and Dan, and it's a great comic to look at today with DeCarlo's masterful layout and brush technique.
