Obscurities - Mister Rumbles

Here's the first five installments of Mister Rumbles by Jack Sparling. The strip started on April 18 1955 and lasted until sometime in 1956. Can anyone supply a definite end date?

The Eisner influence on Sparling is obvious here, but good art wasn't enough to keep this strip afloat. I guess the world just wasn't ready for an adult version of Barnaby or Calvin And Hobbes.


Ver interesting Strip, do you have the complete run? Also what paper was this pulled from. Thanks
No, I don't have the complete run, just the first few months. My run came from the Washington Post, which dropped it early.
