Webster’s Bridge

Cartoonist H.T. Webster may be best known for his decades of chronicling the adventures of the “Timid Soul” Casper Milquetoast, but he repeatedly chronicled in cartoon form the foibles of players of card games, most notably bridge and poker. Here we have dozens of his bridge cartoons, matched with the humorous writings of William Johnston, author of History Up to Date and , who provides “unsolicited advice on how not to play bridge.”

Long out of print and hard to find, now it’s back again – for the first time in paperback!

Speck the Altar Boy: The Collection Compilation

Speck is the ultimate altar boy, half holy, half hellion, well-intentioned but oh, so distractible. Some of us remember dealing with him, others of us remember being him.

Margaret Ahern spent a quarter century drawing the adventures of the never-aging Speck, being one of the few female cartoonists to take part in the Catholic cartoon explosion of the 1950s and one of the artists who stuck with the form the longest. This book collects the first two collections of her work (Speck the Altar Boy and Presenting… Speck the Altar Boy), both out of print for decades, into a single volume for the first time, with hundreds of prime Speck cartoons. Also available: AN ALTAR BOY NAMED ‘SPECK’, a collection of cartoons by Speck’s creator, W. R. “Tut” LeBlanc.

An Altar Boy Named ‘Speck’

Speck is a well-intentioned, spirited, energetic, and often all-too-human boy of the cloth, there to serve, to support, and when possible, to mooch your sweet snacks!

Here, back in print for the first time in over 60 years, is the very first collection of Speck cartoons. “An Altar Boy Named ‘Speck'” started appearing in Catholic Action o the South (the newspaper of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans) in 1951, and by 1952 the comic was already being collected into books and was signed with a national distributor.

Unfortunately, the comic’s creator, W. R. “Tut” LeBlanc, passed away in 1953. The feature was taken over by cartoonist Margaret Ahern, who kept it running until 1979.

Bridge Mix: The Bridge Cartoons of Charles M. Schulz (color edition)

From the mind of Charles M. Schulz, the world’s most beloved cartoonist, comes these funny looks at the game of Bridge. The game, the culture, and the very human foibles of those who play it all come under his masterful attention, with over sixty cartoons in full color.
Charles Schulz was a player of various types of bridge over the years, and he included it in his famous comic strip. In the late 1950s, he set out to launch a new strip just about bridge and the people who played it. While the plan for the strip (called “It’s Only a Game”) eventually expanded to include other games and leisure activities, Schulz still made sure to include at least one cartoon each week about bridge, and those are all collected here, in this one volume, in color!
