Syndication

Barnaby was a comic strip which began 20 April 1942 in the newspaper PM. Created by Crockett Johnson, who is best known today for his children's book Harold and the Purple Crayon, the strip featured a cherubic-looking five-year-old and his far-from-cherubic fairy godfather, Jackeen J. O'Malley, a short, cigar-smoking man with four tiny wings. With a distinctive appearance because of its use of typography, the strip had numerous reprints and was adapted into a 1940s stage production.

Fantagraphics Publishing is releasing the first volume of collected strips and Kevin Lauderdale wants to bring this to your attention.  Kevin explains the strip and its distinctive style in this all new episode.
