    While I am enjoying this segment, I do think it would be amusing if Skeezix was faking it all at Nina’s expense. After all, she did drag him there, and then goaded him to go on stage.

    Skeezix and Nina were married in late June 1944. Skeezix was home on furlough after being wounded in Italy. They decided to get married after learning that a friend of theirs was killed during a landing. The wedding took place at Nina’s father’s farm, and the couple went for a honeymoon at a resort (the Hotel Swank). He got his orders to return to the army during the honeymoon, this time to the Pacific. Chipper was conceived during the honeymoon and born in April 1945. Basically Scanarelli is sticking with the timeline of the original strips but is doing his own scenes within it.

    Was it run by a lady named Hilary? ;-)

    Thank you for the info. It is a beautiful story, not unlike many others of that time.

    The wedding party was shown in the daily strip of June 29,1944. Madame Octave, Skeezix’s biological mother was there and she is shown saying, “I worry about you Skeezix.” I think that was the last time she was shown until Jim revived her years later in flash backs. Go to ilovecomix ga1944.

    Thanks to all who have the knowledge, resources and generosity to share insights into this truly classic American comic.

    While I am enjoying this comic, I find it how other people
    on it, often abuse this “classic American comic” with their boorish comments while others find it to be a timeless masterpiece.

    “Why, did you ever know a conceited man dare to /praise/ a picture? The one thing he dreads (next to not being noticed) is /to/ /be/ /proved/ /fallible/! If you once /praise/ a picture, your character for /infallibility/ hangs by a thread. Suppose it’s a figure-picture, and you venture to say ‘draws well.’ Somebody measures it, and finds one of the proportions an eighth of an inch wrong. /You/ are disposed of as a critic! ‘Did you say he draws /well/?’ your friends enquire sarcastically, while you hang your head and blush. No. The only /safe/ course, if any one says ‘draws well,’ is to shrug your shoulders. ‘/Draws/ well?’ you repeat thoughtfully. ‘Draws /well/? Humph!’ That‘s the way to become a great critic!”
    —Lewis Carroll, “Sylvie and Bruno”
