Odd For Odd's Sake
Thursday Story Strip Day.
Here's a real oddity I came across. There were many strips in the late forties using hollywood and starlets as a name of a bass set-up. Patsy in Hollywood, Dawn O'Day, Jezebel, Talulah and probably more. This one had a daily and a Sunday, but the paper I could get these from at NewspaperArchive was only in their files very sporadicly, so this is about all I could find. It seems to be from one large three month sory (as all stories were about three months back then). I don't know who Pabian was and I am not sure if the Rennie McEvoy is the same McEvoy as the one writing Dixie Dugan and Merrie Chase.
In the comment section there is more information and a link to an Italian website showing two color Sundays. At the end I have added a newspaper clipping I found after finding out that I had misread the name Pabian as Pablan.
And finally this news item from shortly after the strip ended in 1948 (after having had it's name changed in 1947). Striebel created Dixie Dugan with J.P. McEvoy.
