Obscurity of the Day: The Easter Story
Just to prove that on rare occasions I can actually remember to produce a post for a special event other than Christmas, here ya go. The Easter Story, posted a day late since I rest on Sundays, was an NEA closed-end strip that ran for one week from April 3 to 8 1950.
The story was about 50% Bible verses, and the other 50% was uncredited. The art was handled by John J. Sunley, whose only other syndicated credit was on the first week of Ticklers back in 1940. Sunley certainly shows off his stuff to good advantage in these moody, tone-rich strips.
