Late Fine

Saturday Leftover Day.

I have shown so many of Lou Fine's Sam Spade advertising comics for Wildroot Hair Oil over the years, that I believed I had callected all of them. But here is one I didn not yet know, from a 1949 comic book. If you like this and have not seen the rest, please follow the tag for Sam Spade and it's successor Charlie Wild. And the whole story about why there should be a successor.

I have the newspaper strip version (from around Sept 1949) - the splash panel is deeper, so the art in your version has been trimmed (but has been extended slightly - there's an extra column to the right of the panel in yours). Colours are more subtle in the newspaper version.

I would love to see it. Could you scan it for me and send it to
