Number 379

Babe and the fountain of youth and beauty

When I sat down to write about this Boody Rogers story from Babe Darling of the Hills #10, words failed me. Well, except for two: zany, screwball.

Guess you're just going to have to read it for yourself to see what I mean.

That's all? Surely there is more. He has to come back, doesn't he?

This is great stuff. There's a bit of Don Martin style in there, too. Was this guy an influence?

Well, sorry, that's the last of Treetop in this issue at least. The too-tall character was at times a part of Rogers' repertoire. There's a similar character in a 1943 issue of Big Shot Comics with Sparky Watts I'll be scanning one of these days.

I don't know if Rogers influenced Don Martin although I wouldn't doubt it. Martin, born in 1931, would have been the right age to be reading comics with Rogers' work.

Wow ... just when I think a Rogers story can't get any stranger ... it gets stranger.

Great stuff as always!
