Roy Crane


Roy Crane was perhaps the best action strip Cartoonist. Small wonder, since the genre originated with him when he introduced Captain Easy into his Wash Tubbs comic strip. He continued perfecting the medium through Buz Sawyer.

Nowadays, there's barely enough room to set up a gag properly, let alone tell a story. If the comics aren't what they used to be -- and they aren't -- it's not the cartoonist's fault. Give me a little room and no daily gag requirements, and I just might be able to do something amazing.

  1. I used to read a Roy Crane strip in the paper when I was a kid. He used that Grafix paper with the tones really well. Looks like you got your hands on some originals... lucky you!
