I grew up on those titles too. You know I never got to meet the original Dennis the Menace creator, Hank Ketchum, but have been able to meet the current artist, Marcus Hamilton, who trained under his wing and took over the strip since the 90s. He comes out to Heroes Con in Charlotte every year. What a great guy he is. He'll sign and sketch things without ever charging and you can tell he loves working on the strip.

Wow, Rapha1978, that's really cool of Marcus Hamilton. You have to appreciate artists who care so much for their fans. My heart definitely has a special place for these comics from a simpler time. Thanks so much for sharing.

Fun times, Ed. Like you I was mostly into superhero comics but would pick up the occasional Archie or Tom and Jerry or whatever, just for fun. In fact I still have one (1) Archie comic in my collection, no Digests however. And I can still remember learning fun facts that I had never knows about San Francisco and Hawaii via a Dennis the Menace comic book!

Tenzil, this blog episode turned out to be more popular than I thought it would, as several people made comments about it on Facebook, also. Glad you enjoyed it. As one guy said on Facebook about Archie comics, "Sometimes you just want to feel good."
