Old Baileys

Tuesday strip day.

Today three more Beetle Bailey Sundays, this time from 1953 and 1954. I wish I had the full three tier version for these. But I guess that is what complete colections are for. But I'll start with the earliest Beetle Bailey strip in my collection. It's from september 29, 1952, which would make it the third Beetle Bailey Sunday. Over on strippersguide.blogspot Allan Holtz has reprinted thetext from the official launch package from Editors and Publishers magazine, which says that the Sunday started on September 15, 1952 - almost a year after the daily started.
