Outsider comic book artist' day here at DAMIJWH, this time with:

Henry Fletcher, 1879- 1950(?)

Fletcher worked very briefly between 1939 and 1941 when he disappeared from the comic book scene. Decades later he was found dead on a park bench in New York.

An alcoholic who turned violent and abusive when drunk, the few stories he did as a comic book artists have today become the focus of a cult following and are highly admired for their dark weirdness, reminiscent of the early works of Basil Wolverton.

Read one of Fletcher's stories Fantomah - Mystery woman of the Jungle

Panzer Stug III, Ausf C
Nice clear photo of a Stug and a Panzer sergeant. Note the German Army long service medal ribbon on his uniform and the absence of combat awards which suggests this photo was taken early in WWII or maybe the sergeant served with a training unit.
