Flashback! Once upon a time, in the 1960s, two comic strips that I looked forward to were not being published regularly. They might be there on Monday and Thursday, but absent the rest of the week. You never knew.
They appeared in Dick Tracy.
One was called Sawdust and the characters were all talking grains of sawdust. (This one originated as a strip within another strip called The Gravies which was sometimes signed “Chet” …for you -know-who.) Supposedly the artwork was done by a team of four artists, all of them drawing the little dots of saw dust.
When The Gravies was cancelled, the Sawdust gimmick moved over to Dick Tracy.
The other meta-strip was The Invisible Tribe in which there was essentially no artwork, just speech balloons, because the characters were all, well, invisible.
The info above is all from memory. I need to poke around on the webs to refresh myself on the details.
