Dangerous Profession

Thursday Story Strip Day.

Now that I have been showing some of the better drawn soap opera strips of the sixties and seventies, here is another one. Dateline Danger! was done (and bylined for) Alden McWilliams. Just before that he had ghosted huge portions of Don Sherwood's Dan Flagg and taken over Davey Jones from Wayne Boring. Other artists have problems just doing one strip, so either he was a very prolific artist or he was only doing bits and pieces on either or both. Although Friday Foster is often mentioned as the first strip do have an African American lead, Dateline Danger! had a multicolored cast years before that.
