The person who drew the series passed away on January last year, age 94. I agree that this story is becoming so bad that it takes a super human fan (like me) to follow it. Since Celardo took the writing of the script besides the art part of it, the strip is becoming laughable. Even for the 60’s. But that is another reason to come here, laugh at the jokes of the clever comments. Still some people take the story seriously….incredible!
