The Wizardry Of Id

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

Recently I got hold of a two year selection of early Wizard of Id Sundays. After scanning them I intend to show all of htem. The group is quite large. For the first half year, shown here, it is slightly more than half of all Sundays, after that it gets to be more every month. These Sundays start in October 1965, a year after the strip had started and quite close to the first Sundays. The Wizard of Id is a strip that found it's style quite early on, so you won't see a lot of difference between these strips and those of ten years after thta. Except maybe that they are even funnier than the later ones. The strips shown here are my earliest ones and then the first half of 1967.
