Patterson Weekly - 1

Beginning now and for almost a year I'll post photos of the covers Russell Patterson made for weekly newspaper supplements. All from my own collection.
Ranging from 1929 to 1942 it's not even close to a complete run, but still... Scanning and restoring these huge sheets will unfortunately take too long time, but I want to give people a chance to see these fairly rare pages. And I figure that these photos is better than nothing. Right?
Updates will, hopefully, be weekly. I hope you enjoy.

Dailies x 3

My friend and colleauge Germund got a few nice dailies for sale.
One Frank Roberge Mrs. Fitz's Flats daily with a Bat-theme.
A Buz Sawyer daily by Schlensker and Granberry from 1980. Late in the run, but I've actually seen fewer of these than I've seen originals by Crane.
And then a "Mystery strip" by Al Wenzel called "The Hackers". It's numbered #13 in the top right corner and lacks a copyright stripe. I'd guess this is an unpublished daily.
If you are interested in any or all of these: please mail Germund at germund_vw /at/

The Carl Barks Index

Just recieved the Carl Barks index from Kim Weston!
And it's such a massive overload of information on that CD! :)
Just take a look at the screen captures I made below. You'll find info on when Barks submitted the stories, references and cross references and lots of other info listed for every story. And it's fully searchable and you can sort after title, submission date etc making it easy to find whatever you are looking for. Much more handy than a printed book.

There are also plenty of pdf's included where Weston goes into detail on different subjects like unpublished stories and rewritten dialouge.

If you are Barks fan this is something I really recommend that you get.
You can reach Kim at    kpjwest @  to order your own copy. (No spaces before and after the @.) Please include "BARKS INDEX" in the subject line of the email.
