Thursday Story Strip Day.
Here is the last set of the run of Hap Hopper Sundays I have bought and scanned for you. I do have a couple more, but none as continuesly running as these. Although Jack Spar;ing cleaned up his act and became a lot more accomplished artist with his next strip Claire Voyant (which I will be showing later), I like the illustrative qualities of Hap Hopper and Sparling's grasp of comic stoytelling and I wonder why this strip never became as well know as some of it's contemporaries. Having seen other forgotten gems like this in the last few years (not in the least George Cark's The Ripples) I can't help but wonder if comic strip historians weren't subtlely influenced by which strips survived into the period they were writing and which ones disappeared along the way.
