Thursday Story Strip Day.
Jed Cooper was a staple of the fifties and appeared two papers from which I have large runs, but mostly from the later fifties. I never actually scanned it, because I found it a poor cousin to the Milton Caniff influenced strips and it's historical subject made it slightly boring. But when I came across the first few years of Richard Martin (Dick) Fletcher and Loyd Wendt' Sunday only strip, I changed my mind. At least it looked gorgeous back then. Fletcher also did Sugeon Stone before this strip, from which I have pretty much the whole run and will show some day in the future. Loyd Wendt was a Chicago journalist. It struck me that his last name is the same as Chicago born Cheers actor George Wendt, but there seems to be no connection.
