Hio Mankin!

Saturday Leftover Day

The Roy Rogers strip had many different artists. I never really looked at it until I saw the middle years, drawn by Hi Mankin. Mankin has a slightly caricatured style, similar to that of artist such as Norman Maurer, Carl Hubbell and Bill Elder. I recently came across a paper that has three dailies every Wednesday and Friday, making it a lot easier for me to clip and collect them. The files are quite big, though. So I had to do a trail to see how well they upload. To add to that, I have used all my various Roy Rogers clippings through amassed over the years. The good news is, that uploading was no problem and the soonest available spot I will start a longer storyline.

These look swell! I don't think the sundays were by Hi, but his daily work is a dilly!

I agree about the Sundays, wanted to make a note of it but forgot.

Hi Ger.

The first two strips you uploaded look like they were drawn by John Ushler, whereas the Sundays were drawn by Mike Arens. Hi Mankin only drew the dailies from 1953-58.

Thanks, Alberto. These were just all the various ones I had lying around. Did you ever find out how many Sundays Toth drew?
