- Since I’m well into the book, When Magoo Flew by Adam Abraham I thought it an appropriate time to take a look at this comic book I have. From 1953, it’s a Gerald McBoing Boing / Mr. Magoo mash up, a Dell comic book. The artwork is wildly off model from the animated cartoons and is wild enough to look like a Jim Tyer impersonator trying to do 20th Century graphics, just the way UPA would do them.
I don’t know who the artists were, and wonder if anyone out there has a clue. Please to leave a comment if you can figure it out. Here are two of the three stories in the magazine – one McBoing Boing and one Magoo.
