Magazine Covers: Kathleen and the Great Secret

The American Weekly cover serial Kathleen and the Great Secret does not qualify as a cartoon panel for listing in my book. However, Cole Johnson sent my a few samples from this lovely Nell Brinkley drawn series, and I welcome the opportuntiy to share them with you.

If you are a Brinkley fan, or are intrigued to perhaps become one based on these amazing covers, I recommend you pick up Trina Robbins' The Brinkley Girls, which offers amazing restorations of a slew of Brinkley covers. In fact the two above are included in the book, lovingly restored, which is why I chose to leave these ones as raw scans to offer contrast.

Thanks, Cole Johnson!
