Hoo Hock Har Rowf!

At this point in time, Kelly's Sunday strip backgrounds were simple, if at all. The character drawings were still strong and flexible (as demonstrated by Howland's pitching technique).  In this strip, the colors were nicely varied and attractive, with even the printers finally delivering a page in virtually perfect registration. 

Okay! Play ball!

  2. sorry, Thom, for being so late today...
    Just imagine what would have happened if they had used Howland's rocket propelled baseball of some weeks back!
    No perfect color registration necessary in the last panel then.

    Thanks! LLTHB!
