Three Strikes You're In

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Now that I have access to the microfiche archives of I can try and fill the holes in my colection of Alex Kotzky's 'Duke' Handy series of ads from 1958. These ads, drawn in his best ghosting for Milt Caniff style, got him his own syndicated strip not long after that (which was in a totally different style, by the way). There is a three tier version as well as a two tier version, but both use roughly the same artwork.

Oeps... I am behind on my promise. The point is that the Duke Handy's I have are in papers that always have four or five things to scan. And I want to go and do all of them before I go on to the next paper. So it's going real slowwwww.
