All Kidding Aside

Saturday Leftover Day.

Clark started the daily panel strip Side Glances in the twenties. In the late thirties he started The Neighbors and left Side Glances to William Gailbraith - who left it to Gill Fox in the early sixties. In the meantime, Clarke continued The Neighbours until the early seventies on his own. I have never cared for either strip, the humor was to gentle and the style to swirly for me. In the forties Clarke added a Sunday strip to Our Neighbors, called the Ripples. The Sunday strip was dropped in 1948, but as far as I can see it is a lot better than the unadventurous daily.
