Krazy Kat and The Yellow Kid



I featured these two as a text-only team in one of my early anniversary issues, and the idea has rattled around in my brain ever since.  I figure that these two pioneers of the art form deserved a cover all their own.  Without them, who knows where comics would be today?

Hey, a couple of months ago you gave us the full cover from another one of the 'back-up stories' from that same anniversary issue (#500), namely the Green Arrow/Green Hornet. Does this mean that more of these bonus stories are going to show up in their own right? The Devil Dinosaur/Hawkman cover ought to be really killer.

Well that DD/Hawkman story did have a picture with it, even if it was a tiny one. You never know though - I'm still trying to figure out a way to do Alfred Pennyworth, Agent of Shield!

That was really fun. Nicely done.

@Bygrinstow: Ross might be having trouble finding Nemo.

:lol:

Seriously, though; this is a great depiction. Especially, since I have fond (if vague) memories of some Krazy Kat cartoons during the early 1960's!*

*They were part of a King Features syndicated TV package--along with the animated misadventures of Beetle Bailey--broadcast on a local children's show called "Mr. Goober."

This is the first cover I have no idea who either of them are but after reading excellent work, looks a funny read if it was ever made!

Very hip, Krazy and the Kid go together well. How about Nemo in Slumberland and Koko the Clown?
