Paul, Jim, Brick And Jordan

Thursday Story Strip Day.

Sometime after Elmer Wexler did the wartime strip Vic Jordan, Paul Norris took over. This was before he did Secret Agent X9 (which he only did for three months before being drafted into the army). After the war, he got the assigment to draw the Sunday Only JUngle Jim, for which he adopted a Alex aymond style rather than the Milton Caniff inspired work he had been doing up till then. In 1952 he was given Brick Bradfort for which he returned to Milton Caniff again, slowly adding touches of his own style. He was an extraordinaire artist, whose work will certainly be featured in my book on the Milt Caniff inspired artists... if it ever finds a publisher.
