Thursday Story Strip Day.
After his daily cartoon series Tall Tales was discontinued in 1964, Al Jaffe tried hard to sel a new strip. In fact, he once told me in an email that he made about two ideas a month, which still should be 'in the attic at my son's place'. In 1966 he hit paydirt with a soap opera strip for Frank Bolle. This may seem a strange sidestep for the cartoonist and satarist, who had also started working at Mad by that time. But in fact he had written (and drawn) the teen-age romance stories for Patsy Walker between 1945 and 1955, so it was a genre he could work with. These scans have been laying around in my clipped strips for a long time beacuse they are a bit to small to read properly. I wasn't until I got a color Sunday sample that I dared to iclude them here. A rarity, but it ran for two years.
