By George!

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

Earlier this year I showed a classy Sunday strip called The Ripples by daily panelist George Clarke. The best thing you can say about it is probably the worst as well, that his style was extremely cute. In his daily panels that always bothered me, but in the Sundays it seems to have been more at it's place. At least they gave us a chanc to see what a terrific artist he was.

As you can see by 1946, the strip itself had evolved into a more domesticated two tier family strip with a one tier topper about a parrot called Aunt Pechy's Pet Shop. In the paper I am scanning, the two were sometimes seperated.
