AGGIE MACK SAMPLE STRIPS
Here's another page from the book I posted on last time, the correct title for which is : COMIC CHARACTERS by Walter Foster. The other book I incorrectly identified: MODERN CARTOONS had similar art, but I can't seem to find it right now. There are a few other bits and pieces from this book I will try to scan in the future, but the scanner size vs format size makes it a bit time consuming....
(click to enlargenate)Uncle Phil Rynda tells me that AGGIE was indeed published in the papers and he has seen a number of Sunday strips in another collection. The date on the Christmas splash at the bottom says 1954. She seems to me to be a bit like ARCHIE's female counterpart. She even has a "Jughead" type gal pal in one strip elsewhere in the book.
I don't think i ever noticed until I enlarged this page that there seems to be a naked lower extremity protruding from the snow in the Christmas Ski Party panel (left of center in the panel). Pretty pervy for Christmas!!! (Walter Foster NSFW? WTF?!)
