IOWA: Thanksgiving Break and a Fist Full of Paintings

Jesus-Bear-Ben

DRAW: Bear Car

Although it experienced decidedly short syndication, the comic Bear Car (owned by Mackey Comics) made a name for itself as a cult classic with a large section of rural youth in the early sixties. While the rest of the comic book industry was drowning in a deluge of  spandex clad superheroes, Bear Car made a name for itself as one of the few comics to star more bears than humans. The adventures of Grizzly Bear, Robo-Raccoon, Black Bear, Professor Bear, and Big Gay Guy dazzled the youth with its off the wall humor and scientifically accurate portrayal of bears. However, after only a two year run, Mackey Comics decided to pull Bear Car from publication. Some speculate that this was due to the low-readership in major metropolitan areas, while most credit it to the horrendously gruesome issue number 27, “The Un-Bearable Sunday School Rampage”.
