Follow The Music

Wednesday Extra.

Regular followers of this blog will know that I have a great fondness for the 1958-1962 period in American newspaper comics. Comic were no longer shown in the full page size of the thirties and early forties, but after a decade of exploration many new exciting strips were started and there was still time and space to make them special. That's why I got as many Sunday sections of this period as possible. And of course there were many surprises. But none as odd as this one, a Sunday strip that showed a new song every week with modern children's book style stories and art. Wee Willie ran for just over two years and I got many samples. I will be showing them over the next few wednesdays, to ease down on the cleaning - which can be quite difficult at times.
