Obscurity of the Day: What American Histories Omit
Writer Nathan Hopkins and cartoonist Leslie M. Rogers produced the weekly feature from March 10 1928 to April 13 1929 for the Defender.
I have a warm spot in my heart for the Chicago Defender, not simply because of its service to the black community, but because The Cisco Kid, Brick Bradford, Secret Agent Corrigan, and Big Ben Bolt all found a much needed home in its pages during the 1960's. The Defender gave me my first real taste of all of these strips.Post a Comment
