The Last Duke

Sunday Meskin Extra.

Mort Meskin biographer Steven Brower has a Mort meskin checklist that he will send to anyone who asks for it. See the comments for the details. Like most collectors, he is dependend on the work of others. Meskin's body of work is simple to vast to have it all. Toay I have a Meskin story that was not mentioned in the previous edition of the checklist or the Grand Comic Book datebase and it looks as if it is Meskin's last story for Prize Comics' Headline. I ran across it when I pulled the book from The Digital Comics Museum. The scan was made by the very active Narfstar. It is a story about 'dynamic reporter' Duke Kennedy. Meskin also drew a Duke Kennedy story for #75 (which I haven't got, but it says so in the checklist and shows up on the cover of that book on the GCD). I am pretty certain it is Meskin's last story for that title, because after this there is one more issue of Headline, which is catalogued on the GCD with all artists identified and no Duke Kennedy story.

Hi Ger,

This story actually does appear in the latest checklist, which I will send to the Yahoo Group next. But more importantly the checklist is free to anyone who requests it. Just shoot me an email to:

and I'll send it along.
