Look At That Caveman Go

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

Frank Engli is best known as the letterer og Milt Caniff's Tery and the Pirates and Steve Canyon. His destinguished lettering also appeared on some of the Milt Caniff imitations, such as Ray Bailey's Tom Corbett and Bruce Gentry, making them look even more like the master's work. He also had a humor strip which ran for a short period in the early forties in the Chicago Post Comic Book supplement. I have shown two 1942 samples earlier (and you can see them if yoy follow the tag). It's a pretty little caveman strip, probably influenced by the succes of Ally Oop. Here are a couple more earlier samples.
