I am down to my last Coogy. I have some more photo scans Paul Spector sent me, but all in all I think they'd be better appreciated if we have a book deal and they can be scanned in properly. I tried to take out the shadowy bits from two of the 1954 samples he sent me end ended up with something unreadable.
This 1953 Sunday illustrates where the strip went wrong. It's not for nothing the paper decided that Coogy's tag line would be 'there is nothing more uncertain then what next weeks Coogy will be about' or something along that line.
For those of you looking for something extra, here's an original Hi and Lois Sunday page that was sent to me by Dutch artist Gerben Valkema (see Elsje in the links). He bought it not realizing he was getting such an early sample.
