Looking Over Roy Crane’s Shoulder While He Draws a “Wash Tubbs” Strip
Very cool 1938 newspaper article (via Google News archives) on my favorite cartoonist, Roy Crane. Roy Crane pretty much invented the adventure comic strip, and his lively drawings and storytelling were the main influence on cartoonists such as Harvey Kurtzman, Charles Schulz, Wally Wood and John Severin.
