Horseface Klotz by DeBeck

It's saturday and I'm relaxing in the kitchen with my girlfriend. Both of us are working on our computers and our cat is watching us. On the stereo: Veronica Maggio.

Have been reading and scanning Barney Google dailies by the great Billy DeBeck for the past month and I thought I'd share some raw scans with you. Let's begin with taking a look at one of the forgotten characters: Horseface Klotz. 

He first appeared in the Barney Google strip in 1928 and was a part of the cast for the next two years. When Snuffy appeared in 1934 the likes of him, Sunshine and Sully were quickly forgotten.
Here are the first Klotz dailies from August 1928. (He had been mentioned, but not seen previously.) Enjoy!

PS. If you got Barney Google strips for sale I still have some gaps in my vast collection of BG dailies. Just drop me a mail. Or if you want to trade, I have thousands of BG dailies to trade with.
