Dollhouse-sized Jeep Comic Reproduction on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Comics, Features

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.”

Male Call Cartoons With Jeeps

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Comics, Features

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!”
