The Graf Spot

Thursday Story Strip Day.

Here is what I have of Mel Graff's Patsy from 1936 and 1938. It is not enough to read the stories, but fom what I can see they weren't too bad either. If I ever get to do my book on the Caniff imitators, I would have to include not one but two full stories from this series, one from Mel Graff and one from Charles Raab who took over in the forties. One day I'll go back and put all of he different bits and pieces I have of this series in order. If you follow the label, you'll find more samples of Mel Graff's run, as well as those from Charles Raab (assisted by Noel ickles, even), Bill Dyer en some guy who did them in between.

Thanks for this post Ger! I would love to see more of this strip, any for the 30s really (I realize your focus is the 1950s) as the comic I do takes place in the 30s and love to see these old strips for inspiration! thanks again!

More early forties stuff coming up, especially some nice ads.
