A Liffte Tufts

Saturday Leftover Day.

Warren Tufts' first newspaper strip Casey Ruggles ran from 1949 to 1954. According to the Wikipedia page (citing the always reliable Don Markstein), Tufts did not draw the Sunday page between Auust 1953 and January 1954 (before resuming it himself until September). I knew the strip was continued after that by another artist (acoording to Wikipedia it was Al Carreno). Ghost artists mentioned on the strip are Al Plastino, Alex Toth, Edmund Goode and Ruben Moreira. Of course Alex Toth's work was much earlier and on the dailies. This early Sunday looks like none of the others. Al Plastino was the most adaptable of them, but even him I don't recognize here.

I see a lot of Edmund Goode.

An evolved Goode than, becasue what I know of his work is much more primitive. Could be, I don't know what his work looked like after 1950 or so.
