Smokey Stover-Bill Holman-1938

When I was a kid, my Dad would buy out of town papers like the New York News every Sunday just so we could read different comic strips than the ones our paper offered. I became a big fan of the by then looooong-running screwball strip SMOKEY STOVER. I even made my own very first attempt at a comic strip character a combination of Smokey and TV's Gomer Pyle. SUPER COMICS in the thirties and forties was a title that reprinted recent newspaper strips including DICK TRACY, TERRY & THE PIRATES and SMOKEY STOVER.
