Obscurity of the Day: Adam Chase
Here's an obscurity that ran only in the Eugene (OR) Register-Guard. Adam Chase was a wacky sci-fi romp that, not too surprisingly, had the city of Eugene prominently featured amid the Martians and spaceship battles. The weekly strip, which ran in color, was published in 52 installments from June 5 1966 to May 28 1967. Russ Morgan was the creator.
Wish I had more to tell about this intriguing strip and its creator but my emails to Russ Morgan have gone unanswered. I'll be happy to pass along contact info if anyone else would like to try.
Thanks and a tip of the Stripper's Guide space helmet to Elaine Hetschel for sending samples and information about this rare strip.
