Owen Fitzgerald

Owen Fitzgerald
I came across the work of comic artist Owen Fitzgerald recently falling in love his fluid line style and gorgeous dames. Fitzgerald drew various funny comics during the 50's and 60's including The Adventures of Bob Hope, Starlet O'Hara and Dizzy Dames.

Wow... I love his style! I've never heard of him before. Somebody really should publish a collection of his work. Thanks for sharing this, Eddy!

Go here for scans of his Starlet O'Hara and Dizzy Dames.
