Something To Read Over The Holidays

Thursday Story Strip Day.

Neal Adams' work was made to impress and boy did it! I first read his breakout newspaper strip Ben Casey in the Menomenee Falls Gazette and sadly that was also the last time I read it. Due to whatever circumtances this strip has never been reprintable, which is too bad becaus eit was not only very well drawn, but also a very engaging soap opera strip with a little bit of social comentaru thrown in. I am most sad that I never got to read the Sunday only color episodes And collecting them is almost impossible, due to price and lack of supply. So, here is what I had to work with - the first few weeks as shown in the Gazette.

Thanks for this, Ger! Unlike with the Saint, there can be no argument as to how Ben Casey should look: like Vince Edwards! Have you visited It offers for sale pdf copies of four 45- to 72-strip episodes "just as they were originally published; six dailies and one Sunday" via PayPal for $5.00 each!

Ha, you'll get them for free here! Probably scanned from the same source. But when he gets to the Sundays I will certainly get them!
