Crossbones Charlie

Crossbones Charlie was a cute little pirate character that appeared as back-up in a variety of different comics in the 1940's, and was wonderfully illustrated by artist / animator, Frank Little (and "Ole Saylor" har!) First up, from the winter 1945 issue of Crown Comics #4, and highlighted by an attractive lil leggy redhead captive! --and secondly, a one page black 'n white, inside back cover quickie that reminds me a bit of Tony Millionare's Maakies, from the winter 1944 - '45 issue of Bomber Comics #4. Fun stuff!

Oh wow, these are great. And I've never heard of them before, either. The best stuff is hiding between the cover stories of heroic forties anthology titles. I could read stuff like this all day long.
