    After seeing this fantastic strip, I wish there was some Explorigator original art floating around somewhere so we could relish Dart’s incredible line-work in all its glory.

    And boy in the center looks like a Tween Nemo. Good luck getting tween or Teen Nemo out of bed in the morning!

    And,,,,15 minutes later, I am having difficulty moving on to another strip. There is so much going on and so many delightful touches. All of Calkins early spaceships owe a nod to Ms. Jennett’s green flying machine. The lovely and crystal clear lettering make the comic a breeze to read. But most importantly, there is a genuine feeling of movemeny so many early strips lacked

    Thank you! Every panel is a little masterpiece!

    The first super-group of Jimmy, Fritz, Hans and the Young one. (Sorry, I had to)

    It is worth tracking down the TCM doc about the Bray Studios. This is wher Paul Terry, The Fleischers and Walter Lantz got their big breaks. Plus there is a cartoon featuring TAD’s immortal Silk Hat Harry and Judge Rummy

    BTW…Pete I saw in Previes that Titan is releasing a fourth volume of Flash Gordon Sundays—the rare Austin Briggs run. Are you in charge of the Restoration again. You did a splendid job with the Fall of Ming!

    Aha! The Secret origin of Packer fans. (Being from Illinois, I knew they were really aliens, I just never had the proof)

    Outstanding. What a gem!

    And thanks for the creator update!

    How’re things in Skull Valley? Breathtaking, I’ll bet!

    Hmmm… I’ve got to agree with the other commenters. I realize you do this out of love and we beggars should not be whiners, but….
    I went to Stripper’s Guide and Barnacle Press looking for info on this strip and neither of these other scholarly sites have any info at all. But you have uncovered a last name ! Can you expand on your discovery.

    Regardless, this strip is an indispensable part of my daily comics routine.

    Now get back to work on White Boy!!

    What an iconic finale. I think the only thing you can do for an encore is to jump ahead 5 years and let us dive head long into ‘Naughty Pete’. Thanks again Mr. Maresca

    I never knew that Dart worked ‘blue’. Disturbing
