One Walker Special
Friday comic day.
Tomorrow I have a very special comic book story for you. But I am feeling a bit restless tonight, so I am adding a bonus story to tide you over. This is the first story in Four Color #469 from 1953. As far as I can see it's the first Beetle Bailey comic. Some of the licenced books in this Dell series were produced at the Western ofices without any influence from the original creator. These books were clearly done by Mort Walker himself. I don't know how much of the writing and drawing he did himself, but judging from the art he either had an assistant who could mimic his style very well or he did have a hand in it.
