Comfort magazine was one of those really cheaply printed $1-per-year monthly magazines that existed mainly to sell rural housewives alcohol-based cure-alls, and miracle plant seeds to their farmer husbands. For your buck, you got twelve issues worth of badly written fiction, plus columns about anything of interest to the rustics, from female troubles to needlework to animal husbandry.
Apparently from about the late 1910s on, you also got a monthly installment in the charmed life of Cubby Bear, a bear cub who gets involved in little adventures that teach the kiddies all about ethics, the Golden Rule, and how animals don’t eat each other but love and cooperate with each other. Well, except worms. Unlike all the other animals in the forest, they can’t talk. So it’s perfectly okay to eat them.
Originally the Cubby Bear series, which was written by Lena B. Ellingwood, seems to have been in the form of text story, accompanied by a cartoon by Harrison Cady. Later the feature changed into a comic strip. I don’t know when that was, but I have a handful of examples here from 1938-39, and by then the art was by the very good artist Enos B. Comstock.
I don’t know when Cubby Bear was retired, and can’t even figure out when Comfort magazine expired.
