Dan shared this cartoon.
The seller believes this is the second best example of this comic book that exists.
“A RARE CLASSIC COVER COMIC FROM 1952, THE AMERICAN G.I.’s ARE MOWING DOWN THE KOREAN SOLDIERS, BOTH WITH THE MACHINE-GUN, AND WITH THE JEEP ITSELF AS IT’S BARRELING RIGHT AT THEM! GREAT COVER BY LEE ELIAS.
This is one of many shock covers that Elias drew for Harvery in the pre-comics code authority heyday.
Scott spotted this jeep in what looks to be an older Peanuts cartoon by Charles M Schulz. If you are in the Santa Rosa, California, area, be sure to drop by the Charles M. Schulz Museum. Pretty neat!
Maury shared this rare post-war comic that blends together the war-jeep and the peace-jeep.
David spotted this comic cover with Batman driving a Bantam. Don’t see that everyday.
“Seeking quality trade-ins of similar caliber. Valued at $300 for TRADING purposes.”
Starting in 1942 Dell Publishing issued an annual christmas comic book titled “Santa Claus Funnies”. The very first issue featured Santa driving a jeep. The series ran until 1962. Here’s a link to check on the most recent Santa Claus Funnies available on eBay.
This is a comic book cover reproduced on hard card stock in poster size. Ford GP collectors might like it as an oddity.

LIke Gorllias, Jeeps and Jaguars, then you’ll love this unusual original art for a comic magazine.
“This is the original art for page 5 of Laugh Comics #140 (1962 / Archie Comics). This art for a Jaguar superhero story was penciled by John Giunta. This is large size art (art area about 12″ x 18″), in nice, clean shape. There’s some very minor use of whiteout in and around some word balloons.”
I tried to learn more about CBI Theatre Cartoonist Ehret (maybe Wendell Ehret?), but didn’t couldn’t find anything.
Looks like this cover was illustrated from a prototype jeep.
-Mini magazine format, size is about 5 1/4 x 7 1/2
-WWII cartoons and jokes
-Art by Walt Munson, J. Kelly and Charles Wible
Mark posted this over at sellajeep.com. The illustration was done by Shawn Ruland, an artist that does some work for SellAJeep.
Mark found this comic showing a jeep as the potential victim of a large bird of prey.
“Classic DC Silver-Age comic. King Condor. Lower grade reading copy”
Well, this is an odd one. You can view a full size original Jeep Comic here.
“This little comic book is a vintage reproduction of a JEEP COMIC BOOK! FROM 1944! Completely handmade. The cover is illustrated on the front and back. Each of the 10 pages ARE EXACT REPLICAS OF THE ORIGINAL COMIC BOOK and tells the complete story! Most dollhouse comic books do not open or have blank pages. This one has 10 real illustrated pages! A hard-to-find item! So heart-warming and cute in such a tiny version!! A darling and funny story! The back cover is a vintage comic book ad for a GAG BOOK! It has been reproduced so small the images can be seen, but the font would need magnification to be read. This comic book measure approx 7/8 inch tall by 5/8 inch wide. Not a toy. Chocking hazard! This is an adult collector’s piece.”
On the back cover of this coloring book is a model jeep that folds together.
“For sale a vintage coloring book with Model Jeep G. I. JOE. This coloring book is illustrated by Jack Crowe and the drawings are based on official photographs through the courtesy of Department of Defense.

Mark forwarded this comic of BEWITCHED with a jeep on the cover. I found one for sale on eBay, too.
Apparently, there is both violence AND good girl content in the comic. Maybe that’s a warning that there is no bad girl content?
“This lot is an original September 1955 T-MAN from Quality Comics, nice solid VG condition, 36 pages including The Great Assassination Plot, The Underground Press, Commie Fire Bomb Plot, and Red Riffs Of Morocco. Violence and good girl content. Very early code comic! Complete, nothing missing. I will update this with more info as needed! US bidders only, please.”
Here’s a third comic with a jeep on the cover.
I’m not sure if the jeep is fast enough to catch the Road Runner.
Taking pity on Mark’s withdrawals, I spotted this link that I never posted about Fred Kay’s Crazy Railroad. Lots of jeeps on rails.
Meanwhile, I’m going through and deleting old posts to reduce the site’s overhead while I move it over.
Roy Roger’s sidekick Pat Brady had a couple color books made under his name that feature a variety of nellybelle images. You can read more about nellybelle at the CJ-3B page.
1) This coloring book is for sale in a few different places. The cheapest price I found was on Etsy for $8.00 (plus shipping) and includes a few pages colored.
2) The cover of this coloring book was on a Pat Brady Biography page. I haven’t found it for sale anywhere yet.
John took the time to scan Male Call comic strips that contain jeeps and post them at his google page. Surprisingly, most of the drawings appear to be Ford GPs. You can view the cover of the book here.
He writes, “My Dad had a copy of this printing of Milt Caniff’s Male Call and had it stashed in the back of a dresser drawer. Fair game for a 12-year-old when I ‘discovered’ it in ’64. Don’t know what happened to his copy. Saw a copy on Amazon and grabbed it. I scanned all the images that include all or part of a Jeep in the strip. Consider this a fresh look, enjoy!”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.
According to the description, on the back of this comic book is a picture of Roy, Dale and Bullet in a Jeep. No indication they are in Nellybelle or some other jeep.
