Prince Valiant is next in my series of 1964 retro comics. The story line was ongoing and continuous and you needed to follow it from one week to the next. I never did, and maybe the lack of continuity is why it was never popular for me. The comic had exquisite quality, but it was maybe unsuited for the slap-dash newspaper medium. This particular comic was printed blurry on my paper copy. Maybe the detail was too fine for the printing press.
This was a comic that I never got. "Bringing Up Father" didn't appeal to me. However it was in the 1964 weekend supplement, so it is part of my display of retro comics.
According to Wikipedia, Bringing Up Father was an influential American comic strip created by cartoonist George McManus (1884–1954). Syndicated by King Features, it ran for 87 years, from January 12, 1913 to May 28, 2000.
I am bent on digitizing an example of every comic that appeared in the weekend supplement in April of 1964. Today's comic is "Abbie 'n Slats" featuring Bathless Groggins by Raeburn Van Buren. This is one comic that I didn't follow back in the day.
I scanned the whole color comics weekend edition from April 4, 1964 and this is one in the continuing series. It is Right Around Home With Myrtle. It is a very busy comic -- just one panel.
Facebook has announced that they have had a bug that disabled accounts, mainly female. The bug manifested itself by locking users. I have an idea what this may be about. For the past few days, I have been getting messages from women, new users directing me to an email address and website. The profile pictures were of nude women in seductive poses. I kept reporting these to Facebook as I suppose thousands of others did. My guess is that the introduced bug was to block these spammers.
I remember this series in my local hometown newspaper. It was just "Juliet Jones" in the daily strip, and the big event for me was when Juliet got married to Owen Cantrell the lawyer. Google informs me that Owen was murdered in the strip in 1985. By that time comics were no longer of interest to me. This one is from the 1964 series.
I found an old Sunday supplement of comics from April of 1964, and this is the Blondie comic strip as done by Chic Young. I believe that it still continues today and is being drawn by Chic Young's son. Click on the image for a larger version.
