Striking A Light

Wednesday Advertising Day.

This strip ad series ran for a short time in the mid fifties. The later ones look as if Bub Bugg was involved, but here t has more of a Bill Williams/Dik Brown vibe. Happy Joe Lucky. I wonder where he is now...

I once suggested to an American publisher that we could do a book on how cigarette companies (especially Reynolds) subsedized huge parts of popular culture, from radio to television to comics. He said: "And afterwards we're gonna do a book on the good the Nazi's have done?"

This article sort of supports my basic statement, though.
