Monday Originals Day.

Serving up an illustrated children's serial for Christmas is an old newspaper tradition. I have shown stories from the late thirties and early forties illustrated by Noel Sickles and Hank Barrow. Years ago I clipped these samples of a later story illustrated by Dick Hodgins Jr., who went on to ghost the Hank Ketcham signed sailor strip Half-Hitch and inking and other jobs for various Mort Walker and Dik Browne strips. Alongside these he was often seen doing political cartoons (back when they often were not as partisan as these days). I have forgotten to post them many years in a row, so now I am doing them early.
