V is for The Van Swaggers #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of comic strips. For those young ones out there, a comic strip is a few drawn panels telling a story which appears in the newspaper. The first daily comic strip began in 1907, but the color comics (Sunday funnies) actually began back in 1894.

V is for The Van Swaggers by Russ Westover. He created it as a topper (a secondary comic strip seen along with a larger Sunday strip) for his Tillie the Toiler comic strip, which ran in 600 newspapers. The Van Swaggers ran from 1926 to 1943. The strip was about a goofy elder couple, Han and Min Van Swagger.

I’d like to say more about this comic strip but information on the internet was scarce, but of all the comic strips that started with V, it was my best choice.

    I haven’t seen this comic. Thanks for imparting knowledge! Get Fuzzy is my favorite. Though I’ve also come to like Pet Foolery.

    I hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy during this difficult time.
