Back in the early 1990s, when I was finishing
up "Always Something Doing," I met Ted
Slampyak, an artist and writer
who, until recently, was drawing the legendary comic
strip "Little Orphan Annie.
I told him of an idea I had for a syndicated
cartoon on American History, and he (the artist)
and I (the writer) produced
these samples. Sadly, all we have to show
for them is a stack of
rejection letters. But hey,
we still think it was
a good idea, so we're posting some of the samples we
created here. Now
honestly, wouldn't you love for your kids to
get an education while reading the comics???
