The Gay Ghost-Howard Purcell-1944

Skip the jokes that required this guy to be re-named 'The GRIM Ghost" in later reprints, please. His long-running series was usually by Howard Purcell--never flashy but capable of turning out some lovely illustrative comics art well up into the 1970s at least. This particularly well-written piece is almost a variant on IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE...or else it could be said to be that if not for the fact that the movie wasn't made until 1946 and this was 1944!
