Just picked this up off of Ebay (click for much larger images):
I’m such a huge fan of Hoest!
The Lockhorns and especially his Parade stuff pretty much made me want to be a cartoonist.
I love the lines, the shading, the composition.. I just love Hoest.
So, when this original showed up on Ebay, I had to grab it.
Looks like it was purchased for Humorama’s Joker, but I’m having trouble figuring out which numbers are the date of the issue. Any thoughts?
(BTW, I’ve taken Hoest’s address off the back scan for privacy’s sake. Dunno if they still live there, better safe than sorry.)
