Cip, Cip, Hurray!
Tuesday Comic Strip Day.
I don't usually link to other blogs. Not out of disrespect, there are many good bloogers I follow, but out of a strong sense of obligation to bring you new and original material. But today I am dopping my obsessive standards and want to urge to go and check out a recent post by my interfriend Smurfsmacker. Our tastes run along the same lines in many ways (he is currently doing a series of posts featuring the first year of George Wunder's Terry and the Pirates in color for instance), but some time ago he did something I wold want to be able to do: he copied and translated a whole story from an early series by Benito Jacovitti. Go and have a laugh and see how much the Italian Funmaster was infuenced by Elsie Segar.
By the way, Smurf, if you are reading this: I have at least one of these stories in color and almost all of Cip's later incarnation from the seventies, when Jacovitti did who dunnit stories with him and Zagar. All ready and waiting to be translated.
