Let’s start with the little hitchhiker, “Nov Schmoz Ka Pop?” What was the name of that strip again? Was it “The Squirrel Cage”? Who was the guy that drew it (does the name Gene Aherne ring a bell?), and what else showed up in it besides the little hitchhiker? And who were the “The Nutt Brothers – Ches and Wal”? I loved the zany strips from the 1940’s, including “Smokey Stover” amd “The Pie-Faced Prince.” Tell us more about these creations!


Daniel replies:

You tell us. (I remember the Pie-Faced Prince! I think I only saw one or two examples, back when reading was quite a novelty).
