Obscurity of the Day: Miss Aladdin
The series featured art by Virginia Huget, a semi-regular on these cover series (see, for instance, Double Dora and Babs in Society). I like Huget's art, but frankly this series looks to have been a bit of a rush job for her. The series was written by J. Kenneth Jonez in his only known appearance in the funnies, or, for that matter, in any capacity anywhere. Mr. Jonez has the honor of being a mystery even to the all-seeing eye of Google.
This rare magazine cover series was syndicated under Hearst's King Features brand and was running by at least March 1929 and ended sometime in May of that year. Can anyone supply exact start and end dates?
