Obscurity of the Day - Meet The Misses
Here's a neat Sunday magazine section feature that has a lot of appeal. Meet The Misses ran from 1927-1929, a product of the struggling McClure Syndicate and the pen of Jack Wilhelm. Wilhelm went on to do the art on Frank Merriwell's Schooldays and a few other strips. No one will accuse Wilhelm of being an exceptional cartoonist, and his pretty girls aren't all one might expect of a feature devoted to them, but Wilhelm does have one thing going for him - he knows how to design a page for visual interest. This is the first page in the series.
