Satire Dept. Popcorn & Rick Racey

From the Dec - Jan 1959 / '60 issue of Dolls & Gags Vol. 5 #2 "The Offbeat Magazine" we spend April Fool's Day with a couple of deranged, jaw-droppingly mean spirited, (Johnny Ryan-esque) spoofs on two of my favorite comic strips, Peanuts and Dick Tracy. Enjoy!

these guys were possibly on uglier drugs than the MAD gang.

The Dick Tracy one is signed "Gladir". I wonder if it's the same one that wrote most of the Archie comics

Good point Sam, thanks for mentioning that... is there any real way to find out? I need to pull out the rest of my Dolls & Gags issues and see if there's more GLadir insanity.

And thanks for the comment, I'm a huge fan of your work Mr. Henderson and it's an honor to have you visit my blog!
