Pete and Tweet on a Milky Way Mission

The Junior Dispatch loves comics. jd-timeforcomics-230So much so that we’ve been digging through the huge collection of free comics available at The Digital Comic Museum to find some of the best ones that we think kids will enjoy.

Today, we add another great piece into our own archive!

This time we take a look at a comic available in issue No. 12 of “Red Rabbit” from 1949. The series is largely credited to Harvey Eisenberg, an artist who later went on to work on Tom & Jerry comics. In fact, looking at this particular comic, you can see how much Pete the Cat looks like Tom. Likewise, Tweet the Canary plays a role similar to Jerry.

Aside from the complete issue you can read at the Digital Comics Museum, you can also read more about Eisenberg and an actual Red Rabbit adventure here at Pappy’s Golden Age Comics Blogzine.

For more of Eisenberg’s work with Hanna-Barbera characters, check out this entry at The Big Blog of Kids’ Comics.

By the way, the ‘Milky Way Mission’ isn’t the official title of the story, we just wanted to give you a hint it was about.
