Matters of Size
Tuesday Comic Strip Day.
Somehow I never want to like Blondie, but when you look close at them it is immediately clear how ell made they are. Especially in the late forties and fifties when Paul Fung jr. was ghosting them (as opposed to the mid sixties when he was allowed to sign them, but the quality dropped). I have said before and still feel that the 'cropped' version you see in the first few sampled is better balanced than the 'elongated' one. I get the impression the 'cropped' version is the original and the other the product of some assistant adding some space so the same strip can be run in a smaller amount of newspaper space.
