    Volume 7 - Issue 24. November 30, 1943. This issue of the classic photo/article bi-weekly magazine features a three-page feature, "Comic Strips at War," which reproduces various war-themed strips (apparently created specifically for this issue of Look) with small photos and bios of the cartoonists: Joe Palooka (Ham Fisher), Wash Tubbs (Leslie Turner), Tillie the Toiler (Russ Westover), Superman (Joe Shuster), Barney Baxter (Frank Miller--not the Daredevil artist, of course!), Barney Google (Fred Lasswell), Alley Oop (V.T. Hamlin), Don Winslow (Frank Martinek), and Jane Arden (Russell Ross). Also in this issue: three-page "Pin-up Girls--from bustles to bathing suits" features pics of Clara Bow, Jean Harlow, Gloria Swanson, Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, Lana Turner, and others; an article on "[Joe] Louis Will Fight Again" (i.e. after he serves in the Army); a debate on who's the top sportsman, Don Hutson or Ty Cobb; Broadway shows; lots of war-related features; and quite a few interesting ads for General Mills cereals, cigarettes, and more. Cover price $0.10.
