Obscurity of the Day: Mack and Marx

Since I'm running through the Graphic Syndicate's output, here's Mack and Marx. Amazingly, a Graphic strip that did not feature pretty girls (unless your taste runs to the Rubenesque). Sadly, the sample I was able to lay my hands on barely includes the stars of the strip. Sorry 'bout that.

The strip was credited to Sam Hitt, who I assume is actually Oscar Hitt. It ran 1927-28, no specific dates known because the Graphic only survives in a fragmentary microfilm record.


Yes, I would agree with your assumption. Samuel, is Oscar Hitt's middle name. He also happens to be my great-grand father. I'm trying to find out more about him and any info you could supply would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Jason Hitt
