What I Read On My Summer Vacation…

The new Popeye Collection by Bobby London, E-Man by Nicholas Cuti and Joe Staton and Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man by Carl Barks.

The new Popeye Volume One collection by Bobby London, E-Man: The Early Years by Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton and Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man by Carl Barks.  All three of these books are really terrific!

I recently took a summer vacation to the beach with my family and it rained most of the time. Good thing I brought along some good books to read! What does this cartoonist read on vacation? Other cartoonists’ books collections! I read these three collections shown above and when I returned home I had the new Nancy book collection by Guy Gilchrist waiting for me in the mail, so now I’ve started that one, as well!

Hoopin Hollar Street Web

Becky Cantrell, who reads my Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip each day in the Daily News-Record in Harrisonburg, VA sent me this photo. She said it was taken near where she lives in Rockingham County, VA. Becky thought this road name sounded so similar to Snuffy’s community of Hootin’ Holler.  I agree!  If there ever was a real road in Hootin’ Holler this sure would be a bodacious name for it!  Thanks, Becky!
