Jack Bradbury website

Animator and comic book artist Jack Bradbury passed away in 2004. Now his son Joel has launched a tribute website loaded with comic art and animation history. It’s a treasure trove of over 1300 pages of classic comics, odds and ends and a wealth biographical information, shedding new light on working as a freelance comic artist in the 1940s and 50s. I especially love the correspondence between Jack and various comic book editors, discussing the virtues of Hucky Duck, Pansy the Chimp and Angus McSnoot.

    This is wonderful. What a treasure trove.

  • Jack’s comic pages on that website are phenomenal

  • What a gold mine! I’m just getting into these old comics, so this is all new to me, but I’m super excited about this site.

    Wonderful stuff – what a treasure trove! The Internet is fast becoming a virtual museum for great American cartoon art. Buried in obscure comic publications for more than half a century, it’s all become accessible again for the first time in decades. Who’da thunk it? Thanks Joel, for generously archiving your Dad’s work, and sharing his genius.

  • His autobiographical telling of his hiring and time at Disney is fascinating.
