Today we'll have a light and fun post for the WFMU Comic Supplement: a very cute little five-pager illustrated by Jim Tyer, as published in Giggle Comics volume one, number 10, from July 1944.
Tyer's exuberant and frantic drawings in this story give a good idea of how his work would appear in full motion; sight gags abound and there is heavy character distortion and rubberiness, which I always enjoy. His wild and stylish work in animation is well known and spoken about here and here.
So let's join our pals from Giggle Comics at the premiere of The Great Symphony - right after the jump!
I thought I should give you a closer look at the sheet music for Jascha's symphony (above).
This is another book that I found by dredging the terrific stacks over at the Digital Comics Museum, where I was merely looking for some high-quality kid's funny animal comics, and saw this story which was begging to be blogged here at WFMU. One just never knows what will turn up (and I have some real doozys and surprises lined up for this series in the months ahead!!). Until next time - "Stay Sick"!
