Basil Wolverton’s Culture Corner

[drawing of Croucher K. Conk, Q.O.C. (Queer Old Coot) ] Here are some helpful instructions on how to perform everyday tasks in a cultured manner, courtesy comic book master Basil Wolverton. This feature ran in Whiz Comics from 1945 to 1952, and I believe they have never been reprinted.

Too much of Wolverton’s work has yet to be reprinted, including many of his Powerhouse Pepper stories and his classic sci-fi series Spacehawk. Fantagraphics Books is reprinting his illustrated bible this year, though, so that’s a good start.

You can view each strip separately, or scroll to the bottom for the combined strips in Comic Book Archive or PDF format.

Although this is the bulk of the “Culture Corner strips”, there are a few I’ve not been able to find, so unfortunately you’ll have to wait to learn how to cut your own hair, how to mat your hair down flat, and how to open a sticky window in the cultured fashion.

[...] Dinosaur Gardens offers up a whole delightful bunch of mid 1940s comics treats in the shape of Culture Corner by the great Basil Wolverton, which ran in Whiz Comics. There’s a whole ton of them, featuring Croucher K Conk, Q.O.C. (Queer Old Coot) explaining the correct, ‘cultured’ way to get around everyday problems and tasks, from crossing a busy street (above) to how to kick someone in the teeth and how to eat crackers in bed. Brilliant. (via Boing Boing) [...]
