Thursday Story Strip Day.
The Scorchy Smith Sundays by Frank Robbins run form late in 1941 until he left the strip somewhere in 1944. They are the holey grail for all Milt Caniff school collectors, hard to find and when you do they are quickly sold and very expensive. I guess you can always try and find one of those comic books that collected them, but that is not the really thing of course. Or you can try and find microfiche newspaper files but then they are in black and white and probably not photographed too well because of that. Still that is what I tried and I only partially managed to do that. I showed you most of the first year in black and white and here is what I could find of 1944, the year that Robbins left and the strip (both Sunday and daily) was continued by Edmund Goode. I hope one day to share the real thing with you and anyone who has color samples is encouraged to contact me. Same goes for the later Sundays by A.C. Hollingsworth and George Tuska. The first I never have even seen in color and the second is so rare, I did not even know it existed until a couple of years ago.
