Thanks, I did so. I had totally forgotten the second wife in 1932. Time to reread the Annie repromts.
Wives, as in plural? I thought there was only the one in the early years of the strip.
Why do I have the feeling that the roastee at this event will be Walt?
From the description of the theatre program from a couple days ago, the next-to-last panel would be Kane Richmond as Spy Smasher, from the 1942 Republic serial. The serial is known and loved for its outstanding fight choreography and fast pace. Another nice homage.
