Thanksgiving Day is less than a week away so it's about time we saw some classic Thanksgiving art here at Tulgey Wood. One more reason to be thankful for comic books: the number of classic funny-book covers that have a Thanksgiving theme, such as this issue of the long-running Walter Lantz monthly anthology title New Funnies (#70, December 1942), here putting Andy Panda as a pilgrim in the center of attention. (By the way, you'll note that one Andy's co-star in the title's trademark left-hand border is Oswald the formerly lucky Rabbit). Between now and next Thursday I will try and post a Thanksgiving treat, so come back and check out the parade of celebrating character right here at Tulgey Wood.
