I always liked those daily serialized comics, didn’t you? Pity we don’t have a newspaper industry anymore to support them. This was another comic I put together with actual honest-to-gosh pen and ink while working for the Texas Rawhide. I had an old Flash Gordon comic book that I cribbed to get that black-on-white retro
