Ask the Archivist: OLD NEW YEARS
Greetings and Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2015! After all of last year's partying, the Archivist is taking a well-deserved rest and leaves the blog today with some unresearched random New Year’s gags from strips of the past! Read them, laugh and take it easy today.
Your hungover ARCHIVIST
ETTA KETT by Paul Robinson, 1936; and MARY WORTH by Ken Ernst, 1954.
Responses from last week's post:
The Henry strip went retro starting with the Saturday, 5 August 1995 strip, which was originally Saturday, 22 July 1961. The reason we went with that date was because it was from the first week of the modern size strips, the previous being the old larger size which would be incompatible with present day configurations.
A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL COMICS KINGDOM READERS FROM ALL OF US, HENRY AND MYSELF INCLUDED!
