Allan Holtz just posted some interesting examples of the Johnny Hazard "clone" Johnny Stardust over at his Stripper's Guide.
But did you know that Sweden also had it's rip-off version of Frank Robbins successful aviation strip?
Back in the early fifties Jan Ullén made "Jonny Janck" (Pronounced "Johnny Yank".) for a Swedish weekly, wich name I keep forgetting.
I only got this tearsheet marked #5/1952 on the back.
Even though is crude I just love the effort. The guy must have been a fan of Robbins artwork and really wanted to do his own take. Hey, he even made it with a panel grid so that it could be re-formatted, even though it only was published in this format...
I wonder how long it lasted.
If anyone out there got more I'd be happy to see them!
