More Sweetie Pie

Like cartoonist Marty Links, who I showed Monday, Nadine Seltzer was a successful female cartoonist in a male-dominated field during the 1950s. Her daily panel, "Sweetie Pie," was collected into a 1955 paperback book from which these examples are taken. Unlike Links, who continued her cartooning career after her feature, "Emmy Lou" was finished, Seltzer seems to have disappeared from the cartoon world after "Sweetie Pie" ended its run. At least I haven't been able to find references to Seltzer online. If you have information please let me know. Seltzer was a talented cartoonist, and her panel. a little girl version of "Dennis the Menace" showed she had a style that fit well into the era.

I showed more "Sweetie Pie," along with "Bobby Sox," here.
