Most good cartoonists do at least one thing really well… Basil Wolverton did a whole lot of things better than about anybody. He was the master in his time of hilarious, crazy, surreal, cartoony art (indeed, he is the father of the “spaghetti and meatball” school of cartooning). He was also fantastic at caricature, science fiction comics and horror comics. He even did amazing bible adaptations. Here is some of the great obscure Wolverton art from comicartfans.com. I recommend clicking on them to see larger versions on the comicartfans.com site. Note that there is more Wolverton to be found there as well if you do a search for him.
In addition to his insane cartooning talents, the man was also a charming musician… go here to hear his wonderful rendition of I’m Always Chasing Rainbows.
There are some excellent reprints of his work out there, and more to come soon, including a big art book and a collection of his bible work! Those should both be spectacular, I think.
