Comic Book -- Famous Funnies -- November 9, 2021


Thanksgiving is coming. 

Famous Funnies, which ran from 1934 to 1955, was the first long-running American comic book. It mostly published reprints of newspaper comic strips, like William McCleery and Ralph Fuller's Oaky Doaks. Oaky Doaks was a country bumpkin in the Middle Ages who wanted to a knight. Here we see him dream about fencing with a turkey. Note the turkey's weapon.
