Wheeee, we're back in the Sunday strip business for some time to come! Even if they are strips you'll recognize from the Fantagraphics volumes, these are gen-you-wine tear sheet scans that you'll be seeing for weeks and months to come, thanks to the generosity of David Burd.
David has scanned more of the early tear sheets that were originally in the collection of his friend, the late Tony Peters. I'll tell you more about that collection soon, but in the meantime, David scanned a bunch of strips in two pieces, sending them to me raw. I stitch them together and do some clean-up editing and wah-lah, we see these strips as they were seen in newspapers some 64 years ago!
At some point in the future I believe we will emerge beyond the Fantagraphics limits, but in the meantime please enjoy the color and feel of newsprint from some of Kelly's best years. And not to worry, I will still continue the run of 1965 dailies that I've been falling behind on posting.
Long Live Kelly!!!
