    I rember the lLottle King.

    I’m surpised Walt doesn’t recall the Gumps.

    (Maybe it’s because they were before his time.

    I remember the Little King, but the Yellow Kid and the Gumps were way before my time.

    The Yellow Kid was (supposedly) the first published newspaper comic. It predates the Gumps.

    Panel two: “Wake up, Walt! Gertie is callin’ you!”.

    Walt is dreaming, and I think about to pass to the other side, where he will find happiness in the Old Comics Home.

    Well done, good and faithful servant. You have earned your everlasting reward.

    Even if he didn’t go, who will be looking out for Walt when Gertie is gone? Maybe Rover could take some time from his “busy schedule” and drive Walt. There will be somebody. I don’t think it will be a reaper.

    Notice how all of a sudden the new story focus has stimulated many more responses than did the two month plus with Joel and Rufus, like a shot in the arm. Good going Jim.

    Now the Gertie haters will wake up and start posting. Can’t please everyone I guess.

    Is Walt going to look like he did in the 1920’s or 1930’s when he gets to the Old Comics Home?

    Henry is still around, at http://www.seattlepi.com/comics-and-games/fun/Henry/

    Per Wikipedia, “The Gumps, a popular comic strip about a middle-class family, was created by Sidney Smith in 1917, launching a 42-year run in newspapers from February 12, 1917, until October 17, 1959.” Andy makes a cameo appearance, and they’re mentioned in the closing song, in “Mad’s Comic Opera” (ca 1956, their respose to the musical “Lil Abner.”

    Has he mentioned Maggie and Jiggs? Terry and the Pirates? Steve Canyon?

    I’m betting it will be Joel & Rufus who give Walt a ride to the Home. Not a good thing.

    I am afraid we may be seeing the passing of Walt here. The comment about waking up seems to be setting the stage for a dream sequence passing. I would imagine a reunion with Phyllis is in store when he gets to the Old Comics Home. I am already tearing up about it.
