A few years ago for Christmas, Mrs. Flog bought for me via eBay a collection of a half-dozen Christmas cards created and sent by Gasoline Alley creator Frank King to a longtime friend between 1952-1961. Yes, I have the greatest wife ever. Anyway, I thought I would share them, because King really went all out on his cards.

Opening tonight at Grass Hut in Portland, OR, a show from the artists of Yosemite Studios-- Souther Salazar, Seonna Hong, Mark Todd, Martin Rich, and Esther Pearl Watson.

Just got word from Pat Moriarity about this 'terrifying psychological thriller' involving Sasquatch. Paper Dolls "has won some awards and is scary!" he tells me. Pat, you had me at terrifying Sasquatch!
It will be showing in Seattle on Tuesday, June 10th. 8:00 pm at the Jewel Box Theater. (The Rendezvous)
Pat and the film makers will be there. Above is, of course, his EC comics style poster art.
