Number 292

Doll Man meets the Mother Goose Gang

Al Bryant drew this entertaining tale from Doll Man Quarterly #7, Fall 1943. The Mother Goose gang lives up to its name with members like Simple Simon, Humpty Dumpty, and Jack and Jill. Jill is a bad girl, and you can tell because of the comic book law: girls dressed in red are bad girls. Jack's sin seems also to be sartorial. A green suit with a red striped tie. Those wartime shortages were tough if that's all he could find on the ready to wear rack at his local J. C. Penney's store.
