Straight for the art | Annie's L'il Orphans

Courtesy of Ted Dawson comes this odd and strangely fascinating collection of art work for a comic strip proposal by Stan Drake (Juliet Jones) and Bill Yates (Professor Phumble) entitled Annie's L'il Orphans. I'm assuming this never got past the proposal stage since I don't think I've ever read or seen this strip before. It's this peculiar amalgamation of good-girl pin-ups and goofy, cartoon kid art that reminds me of nothing so much as Frank Cho, who would later ride this combination all the way to Successland with Liberty Meadows. I guess Drake and Yates were just ahead of their time. (found via)
