Funny Busness

Thursday Comic Strip Day.

Some time ago, I bought a book on Siegel and Shusters second strip (after Superman), Funnyman. Unfortunately, it was more of a monograph about the history of the strip with a couple of badly reproduced reprints thrown in. Craig Ye's Weirs Superheroes had one story from the comic book version, that looked a lot better. But I would love to se a complte reprinten of the dailies, Sundays and comic book vesrion of this forgotten oddity.

Have long loved Funny Man. Don't know why public didn't embrace him. Do you have theories?

From what I read, I found the stories not to the poit enough. I never knew what I was reqding, a problem I don't have with Superman.
