Patrick McDonnell's comics from 1986

Post by bakertoons on Mon Jun 13, 2016 4:41 pm

Recently, I bought a stack of old comics, among them "Kitz 'n' Katz Komiks #3" by Bob Laughlin, published by Eclipse Comics in June 1986.

To my surprise, it had extra comics drawn by other creators, including two by Patrick McDonnell! This is about 8 years before he started "Mutts", so it's very interesting to see what he did early in his career.

Here they are. The first one also credits "Mr. Pacciello", but I have no idea who he is.

I bought more "Kitz 'n' Katz Komiks", which had more early Patrick McDonnell comics.

So from what I gather, he did two series back then, "Tik or Tak", which is a parody of "Kitz 'n' Katz" (about a pair of cats who can't tell which one is which), except with ticks, and "Zub", which he did with George Pacciello, who was part of a band Patrick was part of called Steel Tips.

Here are a few more I scanned. I think I still have a more, too:



(those cats in the last panel are Kitz 'n' Katz. BTW, those comics are very much worth looking into)
