Peter Scratch begins today

Today starts our first Peter Scratch story here at thrillmer.com.

Peter Scratch, illustrated by Lou Fine and scripted by Elliot Caplin, ran from the fall of 1965 to sometime in 1967. The run I'm posting is notable for the early work of another artist, Neal Adams, who ghosted part of this story allowing Fine a chance to catch up on deadlines. It's pretty easy to tell when the switch is made...

At any rate, sit back and enjoy this tale of action and adventure in Istanbul.

From May 30-31, 1966.

This lettering is pretty wild... So scratchy and raw, not like the draftsman lettering of most strips...

Totally, I think it works well with the rest of the strip.

Peter Scratch's lettering is "scratchy." You, my friend, are such a card...

bwah! I didn't even get my own pun...

The lettering reminds me of Matthew the crow's from Sandman...
