Rebel

In addition to having worked on lots of great titles for Marvel, DC, Gold Key etc., Fred Fredericks is probably more well known as having worked on Mandrake the Magician and The Phantom strips. But today I have a sampling of his mid to late 60's strips from the excellent REBEL series created for Scholastic, featuring madcap adventures about wild teens, with hysterical pokes at the ever-changing pop cultural highpoints of the time (rock 'n roll, Famous Monsters, drive-ins, mods, hot rods...) It's fun stuff, fantastically written and illustrated, and deserves to be more well known.

Yeah, that banner is the best yet, man.

Thanks chums! Damn, I should've just saved the Rebel strips for another post and made this one about my new banner, haha

Love these! And also loved each & evry one of yr Valentine's Day card posts, Mr K - to those who bitched about 'em I say: May you live in interesting times.

Hey, thanks for digging back into the archive, Lorenzo! I may do another Rebel post later this year, the book is full of lots more excellent examples.

Also, no one bitched about the V-Day posts, but so many of my scans got tumblr'd around the web by others, you'd think there'd be more comments at the actual blog of origin-- mine! Oh well... thanks again!
