Adoring: Comically Vintage

…I seriously cannot peel myself away from this tumblr, Comically Vintage.  I grew up reading and loving comics, from Archie to Mad and everything in between. I’ve always wanted to get my paws on some vintage “Girl” comics…they are so entertaining to me, the ones involving over-emotional and dramatic relationships. so cheese, but oh so good. There is a plethora of panels to browse through in this genre. The slang of those times is just too much and I love the art.  Comically Vintage is soooo utterly amusing to me. Here are a few panels I enjoyed, and there are TONS more at their groovy site…

ok, these are a scream!

i know zero about comics. when i was a kid i was so sad that i could not draw comic-book style, so i probably abandoned the entire genre since i was green with envy. how pathetic!

do you like r crumb? there is a SUPERB documentary about that man called "crumb". the movie is just excellent, and that man can draw like nobody's business. he also has interesting taste in music.

The kitchen scene with the opium pipe was the most bizzare!

Great find! I loved comics growing up too, Archie and Veronica and also the superhero types. Your faves are awesome, especially the manically laughing cat at the end!
