Starting Up Is Hard To Do

Thursday Confession Day.

Many times I tried to get the blog going again. After many months of intensive scanning for a new book I am doing here in Holland (and some other distractions) I finally have time again to clean up my many scans for this blog. But knowing that the pressure will be on as soon as I start up again, I keep putting it off.

So I have decided to start doing this weekly first. Lower the pressure. The posts will be phenomenal. Without the daily grind I have been able to collect the rarest and most impressive of my scans. Starting next Saturday you will be seeing new posts every week. I hope you will come by and enjoy.

For today, I have an oddity. A promotional piece by Milt Caniff for the Newspaper industry I have never seen before. I did see two similar pieces from the same period, by Virgil Partch and Mell Lazerus. I don't know if this was a paid promotion, or if some cartoonists got togetehr and decided to do this. But it sure is well done. I wonder if there are more.

Thanks, Ger, the strips posted are very "apropos" since May 3rd is known (as you probably know) as "World Press Freedom Day."
