All In Black And White For Less Than A Dime
Thursday Story Strip Day.
About a year ago, I shared with you a large run of Ray Bailey's Tom Corbett newspaper strip dailies. A terrific series, which shows what it would have looked like if Milt Caniff had decided to draw a science fiction strip (with occasional dinosaurs). I got stuck somewhere in te summer of 1952, but still intend to finish the run until the end of the strip of 1953. Unfortunately, I have only the dailies and a couple of scattered color Sundays. Last week I got me hopes up when an eBay seller offered a complete run of 1951/2 Sundays, but unfortunately, I wasn't the only one bidding. At $150 I bowed out (actually three times $52, as the lot was devided into three parts). If the buyer comes across this and want to talk about sharing scans, I am up for that.
It did prompt me to go back and look for some more black and whote Sundays on NewspaperArchive. I found a decent run for 1951, when the Sunday still wasn't integrated into the strip. I toed with the idea of putting them in with the earlier posts, but since they are stand alone gags I though it would be better to show them here. Maybe I will ad them in the old run later, now that they are uploaded. Here are (almost all) of them for October to December 1951.
