Cecil Surry's Mr. Magoo

I love to discover comic book work done by animators. This Mr. Magoo story from Gerald McBoing Boing And The Nearsighted Mr. Magoo #1 (Aug-Oct 1952) was drawn and lettered by Cecil Surry, an animator I was not familiar with until today. Mr. Surry worked for Walt Disney (Silly Symphonies), Walter Lantz, Leon Schlesinger (in Tex Avery's unit), and UPA. He also drew comics for Dell Publishing from 1948 to 1957. There is a profile of him over at Animation: Who & Where.
