Cartoonist Sherm Cohen (Spongebob Squarepants, The Mighty B) has a great blog where, for the last several weeks, he’s been posting complete comic book stories from the golden age. His latest post is a Milt Gross classic starring Count Screwloose and previous posts include Jim Tyer Heckle & Jeckle (panel above), Sam Spade Wildroot Creme Oil ads, and some of the wildest Jack Kirby, Wally Wood and Dan Gordon comics I’ve ever seen. Check out Cartoon Snap.

    I recall Dell releasing some reprints of the 50s Terrytoons line during the mid 60s (the cover art of the characters was horrible) and recalled seeing the lettering include lower case. Was this the first time lower case was used in lettering?

    The story, by the way, was a hoot.
