Thanks for posting, Shane! I remember being charmed by this strip as a kid, and not quite knowing that Blake's funny, economic shapes did a lot of the work.
I had, sadly, forgotten about this quiet classic. Thank you for nudging him to the forefront again. Together with The New Yorker's incomparable George Price, Bud Blake's work taught me early on the subtle might of a masterful line.Thank you again for remembering.
AW-SOME!It's pure gem, every panel a jor for the eye. Thanks so much for sharing!
A "joy" I meant...
Very clean. Very nice.
Shane - Check out my Tiger post. Happy New Year!!!
these are slick and deceptively simple. thanks for posting :)
Tiger was brilliantly drawn. Bud Blake's compositions rivaled the great Japanese woodblock print masters. However, I wonder if this comic book was drawn by Blake or a ghost artist? The art doesn't have the snap of the comic strip. Is it possible that Blake, like the great Hank Ketcham, drew the strip himself but farmed out the comic book?
I used to love reading the "Tiger" comic strip growing up. I had no idea that Tiger was in a comic book as well. These are great drawings, but I have to say, thestrips were a lot more expressive and manic looking.
I don't know how long it's been since I've seen or thought of "Tiger", but I always loved it as a kid. Now, as an adult, I can really appreciate the care and draftsmanship. Thanks for posting!
I forgot about this one, too. Tiger had great artwork..even if it made Peanuts look extremely detailed. Thanks, from a clay horse..
David, I think you're right. I believe this was drawn by Frank Johnson. He worked for Mort Walker and did the Boner's Ark strip, Dudley Do-Right and Underdog comics in the '70's!
