Joe Messerli Profiles | Facebook
Joe Messerli was successful in several artistic careers. Born in Kingston, Texas, he started out as an assistant to the local cartoonist Charlie Plumb on the syndicated Ella Cinders newspaper strip. Later, Joe was one of many who ghosted the Napoleon & Uncle Elby and still later, he inked and lettered the Flintstones and Yogi Bear strips. (Most of the online obits for Joe today feature a sample from a Sunday Flintstones strip…but I'm pretty sure that's not his work. That one was lettered and inked by Lee Hooper.)
