Wish You Were Here, from Walter Wellman

As with all my cards in which Walter Wellman asserts his copyright, there is no maker credited. This one, however, does tell us it is in "Series L" .... good to know. Some cartoonists really liked these rhyming single word per panel comic strips, Al Posen practically made a career of them. I don't know if the form has a name. Since they are like really really short haikus, maybe haikups might be appropriate?


That sort-of looks like a "4," not an "L," if you ask me. And a four makes a bit more sense than a letter, but what do I know?
