Dick Briefer's Yankee Longago
Right on the heels of my last post featuring off-the-wall back-up features, here comes yet another weird feature, Yankee Longago, by Dick Briefer, the Golden Age Frankenstein artist himself.
If you drop down to the labels on the bottom of this posting you'll find his name. Click on it and you will see I've posted 25 stories by Briefer. That's the record for any one artist on Pappy's.
This particular story episode reminds me of another feature that came later, "Danny Dreams" by Kubert and Maurer for Joe Kubert's Tor, a caveman comic from the early 1950s, published by St. John. The premise was much the same, although Briefer played his as a humor feature, unlike "Danny Dreams" which was played straight.
