Since Amazon may not be able to fulfill print-on-demand orders due to the apocalypse, this is an immediate way to access these four books. Thanks for your indulgence of this commercial.
In other news, the second volume in Drawn + Quarterly's hardcover, full-color Little Lulu books, The Fuzzythingus Poopi, is headed to the printers. I selected the stories, which are some of the best in Stanley's career, and wrote a long-ish afterword, entitled "Sweat Equity." The color reproduction is even better than the first volume, and this handsome book will be a gift of joy and laughter to a world that needs these things!

In the recent second volume of D&Q's Little Lulu, Gordon Rose and Al Owens are mentioned on the credits page. I can't find anything about either gentleman. Do you know anything about either of them?
Is the color in the D&Q reprints reproduced from scans of the original Dell books? If so, do you know who that colorist was? If not, do you know who was responsible for the coloring?
One of them was a background artist and the other was a letterer. Little is known about them. The identity of the comics' colorist remains a mystery. These lower-echelon positions weren't documented. Only the probing of fans in the 1950s and '60s revealed the name of John Stanley as the writer and occasional artist of "Little Lulu."
