Smith-Mann Syndicate IV: The Chisholm Kid
The Chisholm Kid was a new strip created for the Courier's color section on August 19, 1950. As with many of the other strips, it outlasted the color section and was demoted to daily-style black and white format. The Kid rode into the sunset on August 11, 1956.
Carl Pfeufer was not black but German.
I've just been having a private discussion with some other comics scholars where we were kicking around just this question. We'd really love to know more about Carl so if you could contact me I'd be very grateful. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
