From The Archive: Bob Burden's Flaming Carrot

DAVE SIM:
Treasures From The Archive -- Bob Burden is comics' greatest cartoonist/flea market dealer. He obviously ran across this edition of THE HARLOTS HOUSE AND OTHER POEMS (1929) by Oscar Wilde either in the book stacks somewhere in his house or at a flea market or rummage sale and said "HRRRMMPPPHH. Dave's doing an Oscar Wilde character right now. I should send this to him." Which he did, while also adding a great picture of the Flaming Carrot to one one of the (many) blank white pages. I'm willing to bet this is a one-of-a-kind item. Unless Bob found a dozen of them and used them as Christmas presents that year. In which case forget I said anything.

Bob is so damn good. Nobody else can make comics like he does.
