SUNDAY FUNNIES!! Basil Wolverton's Funnies

One thing about my Sunday Funnies, they are off the main stream path.  That may be good and it may be bad.  Today our marcher to a different drummer is Basil Wolverton (1909 - 1978).  Although has created many science fiction and g-rated comics I think for those who have read early MAD comicbooks will recall his grotesque  art (above).  By the way, the above won a contest Al Capp, creator of LI'L ABNER ran, looking for the cartoon ugliest female in the world in the 1940s.  She was named Lena the Hyena.
It is hard to believe that Basil Wolverton was a Jehovah's Witness and illustrated for their magazine THE WATCHTOWER.

Today's SUNDAY FUNNIES is Basil's light side.
