mac and the model

I just read that Ron Goulart's examination of adventure strips from the 30's, The Adventurous Decade, is being reprinted. Wouldn't you know I just found a copy on ebay, but I got it on the cheap, so I can't really complain. Here's to the hope that it hasn't been revised and expanded, I don't want to be running out to buy it again so soon.

In other comic strip news, Ted Slampyak makes a plea to readers of Annie to contact their local paper. Get Fuzzy's Darby Conley answers some questions here. And Morrie Turner talks Wee Pals here.

In tribute to my hard working wife, Jillmer, I'm posting a couple early Mac Divots from 1955. She's out on a golf course this very moment running a charity event. I hope it doesn't rain this afternoon, honey!

My pal Holmes will be annoyed that once again I'm not posting complete continuities, and there's some merit to his complaints. That doesn't change the fact that I'm only putting two strips up here today. I'd like to actually start at the beginning and collect Mac in its entirety, but I'll probably do it in another forum, if I do it at all. At any rate, I think I like these 50's strips even more than I do the later Mac Divots that I've seen. The two here show Malcom Mac Divot taking on the tough job of spending time with his friend's wife, who just happens to be a fashion model. Looks like another rough day on the course for our pal Mac Divot...

from May 11 and 14, 1955.
