MOTHER HUBBARD "vs the Eyeless Ogres"

We spend this Halloween as we have the past couple of years...
...with the comic book witch who looks like a traditional fairy tale sorceress; Mother Hubbard!
Most magician-heroines in comics are beautiful women in tights (Scarlet Witch, Zatanna, Clea, etc.). but Mother Hubbard was the personification of a classic fairy tale witch.
Art for this tale in Chesler's Scoop Comics #3 (1942) was by Bill Madden.
Regrettably, the writer is unknown.
It was her final first-run appearance, but Mother's adventures have been reprinted in both the Golden and Atomic Ages.
Be here next week, when we present another tale of classic comic grrrl power!
