Our Gang with Tom & Jerry #55
By Walt Kelly & various
Publisher: Dell Comics 1949
Our Gang Comics #1–39; Series continued in Tom & Jerry Comics #60
Our Gang Comics was launched by Dell in the early 1940s, and adapted the wildly popular kiddie comedy that was featured in movie shorts since the early days of film. The adventures of Buckwheat, Alfalfa, and the rest were told by a young Walt Kelly, whose later work on the strip Pogo enshrined him as one of the finest cartoonists of the century. Kelly’s fine style and uncanny knack for loopy logic helped animate what was otherwise predictable slapstick. Toward the end of the run, Our Gang began to cofeature the popular animated movie duo Tom & Jerry (a cat and mouse act where the mouse always wins!), who were at that time beating out Warner Brothers and Disney cartoons in the Oscar™ awards for best animated films. They eventually took over the book completely and the comic changed titles to Tom and Jerry Comics in the early 1950s.
VERY GOOD with the usual surface wear & slight rubbing to covers from book being handled, read and stored. Edges of internal pages off-white tanning at edges, A few chips off both covers. Minor stress at spine especially top corner. Still a very SOLID copy.
