Obscurity of the Day: The Yarns of Captain Fibb
I'm told by Cole Johnson that the Kahles strip was contemporary material in Judge. Whereas the Nervy Nats were circa 1904, the Verbeck strips 1901-02, Captain Fibb was running in Judge in 1909.
The Yarns of Captain Fibb made it through the entire Public Ledger run, from May 2 to September 5 1909.
That does it for the 1909 Judge syndicate, and thanks once again to Cole Johnson for sharing this rare material with us. One final plea to you blog readers -- if you know of any other newspaper that ran this material I'd really like to hear from you.
