Tuesday’s Ten Comics: The Tooth Fairy

by The King

This week, Tuesday’s Top Ten Comics pays homage to The Tooth Fairy with a collection of smile-inducing Tooth Fairy-inspired comics. The Tooth Fairy, one of children’s favorite bedtime visitors, is an American tradition with European and superstitious roots. The Tooth Fairy magically knows each time a child’s baby tooth falls out, and will arrive that night giving a gift in exchange for the tooth. If, for some reason, a tooth is lost (as was the case in the “Baby Blues” comic below) or the child is away at Grandma’s house or on vacation, The Tooth Fairy always knows and will still leave a gift. 

1. Dolly of “The Family Circus” wants to hire the Tooth Fairy for a job.
