I Get No Kix

Wednesday Advertising Day.

For my detective strip Hilary King I wrote a clue about the murdered boxer liking a certain kind of extra sweet cornflakes. So sweet in fact, that he didn't notice he was being poisoned before the fight. I based this on an actual cereal from the period this strip is set (the early fifties), which also gave a rocket ring, called Kix. I only had a black and white scans as sample to show the artist Jeroen Steehouwer, but recently I found the color one.
