Time for an early piece by Dick Moores of Gasoline Alley fame.
This is a "Windy and Paddles" daily, the strip that followed in the footsteps of his Jim Hardy.
This strip might not be everyones favourite, but look at the inking,
just look at the inking...
Lots of contrast between the different types of shading. And a nice use of black spaces. He sure knew what he was doing.
Shortly after this Moores joined the Walt Disney studio were he worked at the Comic Strip Department. And this strip once belonged to one of his colleagues there: Bill Wright.
How do I know that? Just take a look at the back of the original art. :)
Watch out for the first volume of Dick Moores Gasoline Alley coming from IDW this fall!
