Dan Gormley Meets Crusader Rabbit
In the near future, the work of artist Dan Gormley will reach a wider audience than it ever has, mainly due to his association with John Stanley, whose run on Nancy & Sluggo (featuring art by Gormley) is going to be reprinted by Drawn & Quarterly Books. Gormley's stuff is visually appealing to be sure. His panels are laid out well and his characters are very expressive. See for yourself in this Crusader Rabbit story from Four Color # 735 ( October 1956). The writer is not John Stanley, but Nancy Hoag, a teacher turned prolific author whose last book, published in 2002, was a memoir called The Fingerprints Of God: Seeing His Hand In The Unexpected.
