Thursday Story Strip Day.

Here is an example of an interesting story strip from 1948 that fell by the wayside. It's one of those action detective thingies that were all the rage back then. The art is quite pretty even though the artist Don McCabe is unfamiliar to me. His nephew Tim McCabe has a blog, where mentions him briefly ( I would love to read a whole story, but there are so many other strips waiting to be gathered...
