February 24, 1934

Jim created this advertisement to show new comic strips coming to the Toronto Star in 1934. They are:

  • Moon Mullins by Frank Willard
  • Felix the Cat by Otto Messmer
  • Secret Agent X-9 by Dashiell Hammett and Alex Raymond (a famous duo who only worked on the strip for it’s first year)
  • Shop Acts by Henry Rouson (a very short lived comic)
  • Joe Jinks by Pete Llanuza (who had recently taken over from creator Vic Forsythe)
  • Etta Kett by Paul Robinson
  • Doc Wright by Rube Goldberg (a unexpectedly serious strip from a long time gag author that only lasted for 10 months until he switch back to humour)
