Thursday Story Strip Day

Here's another batch that came from my recent scanning activities witj a credit question. Mike Roy is credited with the creation of the short running comic strip version of novel detective Nero Wolfe. Original writer Rex Stout also lend his name to it, but it is doubtful he did more than have a look. After a year or so, Roy left the art to others, including Fran Matera and someone called Christiansen, but even before that he didn't do it all by himself. Mike Peppe has been mentioned as an inker and here in these pages (certainly the last three) I clearly see the hand of Mike Sekowsky.

Yep, I agree. Loks like Mike.

Nice colors, too.

Alberto Beccatini came back to me and agreed as well. He said the inking probaby was by Mike Peppe. And since I suspect that Sekowsky might have done ony the lay-outs or figures maybe we are looking at a triple Mike here.
