Say What Now?

Saturday Leftover Day.

One day, I would like to write an article about the history of funny photo strips. I am expecially interested in the period around 1960, when Lou Silverstein's TeeVee Jeebies in Playboy inspired Stan Lee, Harvey Kurtzman and Gerald Gardner do do their own version of photo's with funny balloons. There had been photo's with funny captions before that, name this unknown but long running newspaper series, Small Talk. After that I have one of the last examples of the genre, Stan Lee's short running daily political photo strip Says Who? from the late seventies.
