Number 349

Sparky Watts and the Walking Mummy

Time for our Boody fix. I can't go too long without showing one of Boody Rogers' great cartooning jobs from the 1940s. This backup story is from Sparky Watts #5, 1947. The cover story of this issue is featured here.

Fun tale Paps, if we had coordinated this a little better I could have mentioned that in August I'm doing Mummy Mondays, a different mummy story every week. Maybe we can still do it?

Well...errrr...not sure I have any more mummy--or daddy, yuk-yuk--stories to show. I'll have to check, but it will entail entering the Sarcophagus of Screams, my basement, a place not for the faint of heart. It is replete with scuttling many-legged critters, rattling bones, dessicated old ladies in rocking chairs under swinging lamps, etc.
