Race car manga and funny animal comics

Here are some pages from my sketchbook. I've developed an interest in funny animal comics and older animation drawing. So these sketches are based on a lot of sources including old Harvey comics and Preston Blair's How To book on animation drawing.

I have 2 questions for anyone reading:

1. What are some good funny animal comics? What's worth tracking down? What's available in easy to find and afford reprint volumes? Recommendations, please. Thanks.

2. I'm illustrating a new graphic novel, and the script at one point references race car manga. The writer and I were joking about this, but is there a sub-genre of race car manga out there? If so, what are some titles? I could only think of Speed Racer, which I've never read but watched the cartoon as a kid and LOVED the movie. Here's a link to see some cool race car comics, this is Rodd Racer by Toby Cypress. Beautiful comics I think. Another good one is Alex Toth's One for the Road - a collection of comic strips Toth did for Drag Cartoons, Big Daddy Roth, Hot Rod Cartoons, and CARtoons in the 60s.
