Toppers: The Counter Kids

Wow, it's been ages since I last covered a topper strip here. You all remember what a topper is, right? Even if you don't, fear not intrepid strip fan, there's a whole post here to get you up to speed on the subject.

Anyway, today's topper strip is a really obscure one, because it ran for just a short time. The Counter Kids, which chronicled the lives of two catty young sales clerks, was Russ Westover's topper to Tillie the Toiler from March 21 to May 2 1926. After that, the long running Van Swaggers anchored the space for the better part of two decades.
