More cool than a new beret or Jack Kerouac stopping his car and leaning out to ask YOU for directions! Above: detail from KOOKIE #2 from 1962.
"The In Crowd" shares couple of issues of KOOKIE from the early 1960s at his I'm Learning to Share! blog.
KOOKIE was created by John Stanley. Mr. Stanley is best known as the writer/artist who 's responsible for all those LITTLE LULU comics. If you can't get enough of those Maynard G. Krebs beatnik style characters who snap their fingers instead of clapping and and call everyone "man," even if the person is a woman (How wacky!) -- then you will grok this!
It's great to see these full color cartoon covers, as well as the fun zippy cartoon style of this comic, which was finished by Bill Williams.
