The one and only issue of Tally-Ho Comics is best known for the John Giunta/Frank Frazetta feature, Snowman -- a thoroughly nutty piece of work, which can be seen in its entirety at Pappy's Golden Age Comics blog. But the unsung gem in this one-shot from 1944 is this He-Man story drawn by an uncredited C. A. Voight.
Voight had drawn the syndicated strip, Betty, starting in 1920, but left the newspapers for comic books in '43. He died in '47, so there are only a few years worth of comic book work by him. I think his drawing is just great -- and this crazy story is a real treat.
But can anyone explain why our protagonist suddenly becomes a miniature version of himself at bottom of page 5 of this tale? I'm mystified!
