Swipes File #5: Fruit

The Comics Journal had an interesting feature called the “swipes file” where they showed two comics or cartoons by different creators with very similar formatting. In that spirit, I offer a series of mash-ups (or possibly swipes) on similar topics from some of my archival research.

Let’s have a look at the symbolism of fruit:
