Last Chance For Summer Fun!
It's Labor Day weekend, the traditional end of summer vacation—the last gasp of vacation, so to speak—so here's a bit of summer fun, comic book style. This colorful 1955 cover conveys all the fun of a summer road trip, as enjoyed by Tom (who knew he had a driver's license?) and Jerry (and little Tuffy, Jerry's comic book-only sidekick) and their friends. This is (another) opportunity to all you Tulgey Wood visitors that I will be back to blogging on a more regular basis soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this choice bit of comic art—and for some real late summer fun, visit Thad K's blog, as he's posted a full Tom & Jerry comic story from March 1951, drawn by the wonderful Harvey Eisenberg here (scroll down until you see the Tom & Jerry story).
