Tuesday Comic Strip Day.
For most his career, Colin Allen was earning his living as a cartoonist fir all the mainstream magazines and doing illustrations for Sunday weekly magazines such as the Pictorial Review and American Weekly. As such, he is a mainstream artist that I usually skip when scanning. But from 1946 to 1954 he did a Sunday only newspaper feature that is quite a lot of fun. What A Family! was clearly a take-off of Right Around The Corner, which originated the idea of having a huge tableau of the same family, everyone doing their own thing and having their own comments on the subject of the week. Like What A Family!, Right Around Home had two panels, only in the latter case they were devided by a diagonal border. What A Family! benifits from Allen's obvious superiority as a cartoonist, though. If he had been first, this funny and colorful feature could have been big.
