Venturing into the potentially illegal (dear Archie Comics, please don't sue me or anything. I just wanted to share this cool story from one of your old comics), here's an interesting Li'l Jinx story that offers as somewhat critical comment on art. Occasionally I'll come across a story like this that really shows the anger felt by comics artists over their work not being considered "art."
(Also, can we take a moment and enjoy the absolute, utter, heart-stopping creepiness of that life-sized tiger stuffed animal slumped against Li'l Jinx's bed? Terrifying.)
