50 Years Ago

And an odd little story with authentic details that takes place just when Hergé began The Adventures of Tintin in 1929.

I really like Swarte's work.

I never heard of Swarte before this post, but his work really seeems to hit the spot/solar plexus.
Incidentally, 50 years ago, to the day, was a Sunday also. I happened to notice this (for me) "important" fact while checking newspaper archives for Pogo strips (happens to be my birthday; therefore the "importance")
Thanks for drawing attention to Swarte
and a Happy Kelly Sunday to you!

Hun, am I reading this right, that 'today' is your birthday?

If so, then best wishes for a very nice birthday! And as always, thank you for your support!

Hun's answer:
yeah, verily! Done threescore and ten.
Looking forward to the rest (and if I hold on long enough I might even see a the Fantagraphic Pogo edition completed...)

Good for you Hun!

(That's my goal too)
