Imagine, Ger Apeldoorn!

The Johnny Hart's first works before of him producing the well-succeded B.C. comic strip, which conquered the newspapers of the whole world, via Field Enterprises, and nowadays, via Creators Syndicate.

In the recent B.C.collection from Checker (the last collection he oversaw before his passing), he tells the story of his early years. How he worked as a commercial artist at a big company, while selling cartoons on the side. I have shown some earlier from the Saturday Evening Post and I believe Collier's or True.
