One of the continuing joys of my life has been the Bud Plant catalog, which for more than 40 years has been providing me with comic art and illustration. My latest score is Holy Sh*t! The World’s Weirdest Comic Books (2009) by Paul Gravett and Peter Stanbury, and I offer just a few cover samples here.
I bought this one on the way home from school in 1961, little knowing I would come across it today in tributes to Joe Kubert, a great comic book artist. The one below is also Kubert’s, from 1966, with a rather over-long description that makes me chuckle. RIP, Joe Kubert.
One of the advantages of living in Onondaga County is access to publications like this one, from Information Materials Press, distributed by the Onondaga County Department of Health’s Anti-Venereal Disease Campaign, sponsored by Bristol Laboratories and the New York Alliance for Eradication of Venereal Disease, Inc., in 1965.
