Stars In His Eyes

Saturday Leftover Day.

Feg Murray's Seein' Stars was one of the main features of KIng Features Puck Sunday section. It always sells well on eBay, probably because of the celebrity connections. And indeed, there are few newspaper strips that are often so framable. I myself have given away one or two as a present. It surprises me that there has never been a collection of the Sundays (although there was one of the dailies, only a fraction of the enormous amount Marray made). But maybe collectors of certain movie starts do not want a book filled with other big names.

Never heard of this guy before, but the drawings are clearly traced from photographs. Just as an example look at this and compare with the last sample:

Yes, but he was so good at it and the colors are so nice people love to collect it. Have a look at the dailies further on in my blog.
