Dirty Pencilling

Thursday Story Strip Day.

One of the highlights of the fanzine Alter Ego is formed by the remaniscences of artist Marc Swayze for the Fawcett section of the magazine. Swayze worked as an artist on Mary Marvel and other Fawcett properties, but in his column he also talks about aborted projects and others parts of his career. It is odd that he does talk about his work for the newspaper strip Flying Jenny, but no art of this strip has ever been shwon. He worked as the credited artist n the strip for more than a year in 1945 and 1946. Here is a relatively complete run of his Sundays from 1945.

It's good to see these scarce strips. I actually think Swayze was at least the match of if not better than Keaton on Flyin' Jenny (I like them both). Like you I enjoy Swayze's reminiscences. He's a talented creator.
