    The manic energy in each panel is intoxicating. Swinnerton was a true master of the form

    My first guess is Foxy Grandpa

    Could you run them all? Pretty please??? What can we do to make you say ‘yes’?

    Does flattery work on you?

    If so, i’d love to mention the splendid job you did on Titan Books 4th volume of Flash Gordon Sundays by Austin Briggs.

    If flattery doesn’t work, I still must recommend ‘The Storm Queen of Valkir’. It is a beaut!

    Ahhh… A unique feminine twist on the ol’ Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Lampshade party favorite.

    One must assume a young Frank King read this strip and remembered it vividly. (How could anyone forget it?)

    The amount of rich background detail is surprising. Compare this sample to the Yak/Gump transitional Sunday.

    This work looks Closer in style to the Stanley Link ghosted Chester Gump adventures a decade or two on.

    Is this really what Smith was capable of or was he using assistants this far back????

    (Either way this is an impressive and enjoyable page)

    Is it just me, or is roundish friend of Pete a dead ringer for Charles Foster Taine aka Bouncing Boy of the LSH?

    Waitasec….this is the cleaned up version. Where’s the original?

    And someone threw a bird still in its cage…and a rolling pin.
    Was Pop turning into a pig a reference to the Rarebit Fiend?
    Thank you not-so-naughty Pete ( Maresca )!!!!

    And he banged into the ever-changing title logo…brilliant!

    This has to be one of the greatest short-run strips of all time.

    Beautiful and so much fun!
