Lead us on, Paul
Thursday Story Strip Day.
Last time I showed some of Paul Reinman's work I did not get a lot of response. Still, I like his early work for Atlas and the Merrie Chase strip he did just before that. He took over Merrie Chase from Carl Hubbel in February 1950, as I showed earlier. Here is his first two months after that. The dailies are okay, but the sundays are the best. They show a different style than the superhero work he did before this or the horror and war stuff he did for Stan Lee a year later. It seems his run on Merrie Chase (and the whole strip, probably) ended at the end of November, so there is much more to show if I get around to clipping it.
I'll start with a spotty selection of January strips, so you can see the last of Carl Hubbel's work, after which I'll repeat my previous post about Februari. After that comes March and April.

I am still collecting March, but I'll post it as soon as I have it.
