The Secret Ingredient

Thursday Story Strip Day.

Rodlow Willard stopped drawing Scorchy Smith after several years in October 1953. For a week the feature was taken over by someone working in Willard's stylem but since Willard had signed and this artist didn't and since the revious storyline had finished and this one seems like a bridge to the new harsher style of the next artist, I don't think it is him. My guess is, it is probably some AP staff artist, maybe even Morris, who took over the strip in the late fifties and early sixties after George Tuska left. Anyway, after a week A. C. Hollingsowrth starts and he turns it into a very heavily drawn space opera.
