Number 1675: Morning after the day...
But today at Pappy’s we celebrate the day after with some fine original art, originally posted at Heritage Auctions, and re-sized to make it more convenient for downloading or reading. First up, “‘Twas the Morning After...” drawn and written by Sheldon Mayer, and inked by Tenny Henson was published in DC’s Limited Collector’s Edition #C-50, in 1976.
Next a cover from another Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer special from 1978, also drawn by S.M.
The fine scanning is done by the folks at Heritage Auctions. A big thank you to them.
UPDATE December 26...A couple of readers wanted to see how to make a floor yo-yo, as promised by Rudy on the last page of originals. Always happy to accommodate. I went to my Big Box of treasury-sized comics, and here are the plans.
Finally, I believe this Mayer story, penciled and inked (and presumably written) by S.M. is unpublished based on the lettering not being inked. It is said to be from Plop!, and while “Gregor’s Grisly Grotto” does not have a Christmas theme, it is an extra present to all of us from the old master.
