Shhh! It's a secret!
A rare newspaper ad from April 9, 1941 that I found on eBay a while ago. The secret? Blondie and Dagwood's second child Cookie that first appeared on April 11.
Unfortunately I don't have the first Cookie strips but here are a few others from '41 (taken from an eBay listing), featuring Cookie and the rest of the Bumstead family.
And while we are at it here are "Prattle & Tattle" and "Town Topics". Two odd and unsigned strips that appeared in the Loris Sentiel in 1957. For those of you who just can't get enough of rare and unusual Newspaper comics. :)
