You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

A Buried Treasure For Easter

For today, Easter Sunday, here is another treasure, albeit a buried one—and so it seems appropriate to resurrect it for this day. This art of the risen Christ was actually created for the Ascension cover of Treasure Chest, dated May 11, 1961 (the day on which Ascension Thursday fell that year) but I liked its stylized yet almost primitive style for today. What was Treasure Chest? With its full title of Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact, this unusual comic book was published weekly on a September-June schedule for Catholic schools from 1946 through 1972. Though there were always stories about faith and saints and the like, there were adventure and humor stories, too, all told through the comic form. Look for more about Treasure Chest here in Tulgey Wood...and in the meantime, enjoy this no-longer buried art treasure for Easter.
