    I just noticed the “honor roll” on today’s Sunday. David Lettick is mentioned but Tex Blaisdell isn’t? Blaisdell had the better run here. Lettick was so bad artistically it’s a wonder the strip wasn’t cancelled then and there. It’s because of Lettick’s two-month stint that the feature went into a five and a half year Harold Gray reprint sequence until Leonard Starr mercifully revived it.

    Digging deeper into Mr. Am, it was obliquely suggested by Harold Gray with his first appearance that he was a representation of God himself. So many comments by him attested to that fact in the first story alone. Leonard Starr kept the same narrative running when he took over the strip. Along the way a sinister character was introduced named Mr. Rune who was after Annie’s soul. This suggested that we were seeing The Devil in person. All of this culminated in a titanic struggle between Rune and Am for dominance with Annie becoming the catalyst which prevailed. Definitely a struggle between the forces of Good and Evil with Am coming out on top. The character has never changed since.

    The character referred to by Annie was named Huckie Flynn, not Huckle. That was in the early days of the Leonard Starr era. He and Annie shared quite a few adventures together. Huckie’s father Doug was even featured in some of those stories.

    Interesting villain rundown in panel 2. Lowbrow? Highbrow was a bad apple in the Kerry Drake strip, which was an attempt to follow Tracy’s popularity some 12 years to the day after Tracy’s debut. Looks like the current team is going the Al Capp Fearless Fosdick route. This could get intriguing.

    Amazing how many of you have forgotten Bob Lowery who starred in the second Batman serial in 1949. Am sure this is a tribute to him and we keep the Batman ties going until The Penguin makes an appearance.

    Merry Christmas to everyone here. I usually print my strips off over at Comic Strip Nation because of the larger size. Today’s has proven interesting. They have misspelled the word Christmas over there. Not so here. Check it out.

    Oh, by the way, I like this larger size. Just wish Go Comics would go with this format. Much easier to read.

    What the fritz? The good guys are the bad guys and no crime committed? This development has my head dizzy!

    Anyone who’s familiar with Measles’ 1945 appearance know that he’s slipperier than an eel. Don’t discount an escape here. I have a feeling that we haven’t seen the end of him yet. Interesting developments are yet to come.

    I’ve also wondered about the identity of the bespectacled character in today’s strip. What if it’s really Davey Mylar who survived all the gunplay at his headquarters? Mr. Crime could be making a return appearance, then. Something for us to think about.
