God Bless Adventure

Some years ago, I shared a long run of microfiche dailies and color Sundays of Dan Heilman's The American Adventure, a historical strip written by Bradford Smith and drawn by Heilman in the Milt Caniff style. I had three more stories in color Sunday form, but had stopped collecting the dailies (which continued the storyline). Recently I picked it up again and I am very proud to be able to present the first of the last three stories of this remarkable series. The microfiche dailies are from two different papers, one too light and one too dark - and both not complete online. I have added them again to help read the story. The story started and ended on a Tuesday. I tried to correct the one for 12-19, which took me about two hours and then I discovered I had even forgotten a piec in the right hand corner.

Hopping Through The Ages

Sunday Surprise day. For today's surprise I am showing quite a later strip than usual. Conrad is a mid eighties fantasy set in a fairy tale world of princesses, frogs and hairy godmothers. Artist Bill Schor was one of a host of political cartoonists who tried to follow Jeff McNelly's succes with his 1977 hit Shoe. I remember seeing this strip on my first trips to the US and being very impressed. I hope you enjoy them, there is more to come.
