366 Days with J. Jonah Jameson, Day 111: Will you surrender to me, Marie?

Yesterday I highlighted a rare-as-a-Wolverine-appearance (in Wonder Woman) J. Jonah Jameson portrayal by Jack Kirby — but with the caveat that, since it was a background appearance in Not Brand Echh after all, it mighta been one of Marie Severin's classic caricatures. So why not spend the rest of the week focusing in on the Divine Ms. M.S.'s depiction of the greatest newspaperman ever (who doesn't appear in Superman comics), J. Jawbone Junkton!

Panels from "Peter Pooper vs. Gnatman and Rotten" in Not Brand Echh #2 (September 1967), script by Stan Lee, pencils (and colors?) by Marie Severin, inks by Frank Giacoia, letters by Al Kurzrok

Tomorrow: more marvelous Marie!
