Hop On, Silver!
Thursday Story Strip Day.
One of these days Twomorrows will publish a new book on the life and works of Dan Spiegle. He may be best know for the Crossfire and Hollywood Superstars series he created with Mark Evanier for Eclipse in the eigthies, but he had been around for a long time by then. I hope the book will give exstended attention to his work on the cowboy newspapern strip Hopalong Cassidy he did in the early fifties. It is beautifully drawn and very nicely colored and deserves some recognition. I have been saving up samples good and bad over the last few years and would love to share a complete run. Instead, I am sharing whatever I have and hope to ad more later. I guess the strip is relatively unknown because a. cowboy strips, once all the rage, are out f fashion the last few years; b. there were comic strip versions from Fawcett and DC (by Gene Colan no less, so follow the tag to see some of those) that are more familiar and c. there might be copyright issues with the owners of the whole Hopalong franchise.
am starting here with wht I have of 1950. Only one color scan in this year, there will be more later.
