Life on the Radio Wave - kids and technology comics from the 1920's
comics centering around last century's big radio craze. It might be easy to dismiss Life on the Radio Wave as just another one of those features were it not in fact the product of a legendary figure not generally known for his work on the comics page - take a look at the signature on one of these panels. That's right, "Pinto" is none other than Vance DeBar "Pinto" Colvig! Animation pioneer! The original Bozo the Clown! The voice of Goofy! And Bluto! Co-composer of the children's song Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?! He even voiced some of the munchkins in MGM's The Wizard of Oz...good gravy, this guy's resume goes on and on.
