As I get older, I'm slowly getting rid of things I don't need. But before I do I'll share them with all you nice people.

Milt Gross was pretty much everywhere in the 20s, 30s, and 40s, and he was one of the first people to introduce Yiddish dialect into the mainstream. He also did a lot of fillers for American Comics Group in the 1940s as well as his own series for them. This is one of the few work-for-hire jobs that I know of. He usually would do "Count Screwloose" or "That's My Pop!" or something else he created long before working for them. ACG also had a lot of "dizzy dames" back-ups in many of their teen and humor titles and he seems to have done a few with characters they created, like this one from THE KILROYS #10

Much of the material here is at least a generation old and therefore sometimes has racist and sexist standards we wouldn't conform to today. I try, but can't always do a line-item veto. You're not wrong to be offended, think of it like a friend you like hanging out with 95% of the time but once in a while they embarrass you. My own attitude is to move forward.
