Done By Gerard

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

I have shown some dailies from this strip before. I am a fan of the art of oldtime cartoonist Dave Gerard, but it is the concept and the early sixties satire of writer Doneby that makes this one really stand out. Since Doneby later took on the strip on his own, I get the impression that he was the artist/writer and that someone at the syndicate matched him up with a more salable and experienced artist. Whatever the reason, they were a good match. There was also a Sunday version but in all my time as a collector I have seen only one sample.
