More “Rat Race” Panels by Tippit, and One by Bob Barnes about Wednesday “Look Day”

Here are some more Jack Tippit panels, from the late 1950’s, about the cartoon rat race. These originally appeared in a monthly newsletter put out by Look Magazine Cartoon Editor Gurney Williams, and distributed only to the local cartoonists who visited his office on Wednesday, the official “Look Day”.

You can see that Saturday Evening Post photo, and my story about it, right here.
