Obscurities – Mister Rumbles

Here’s the first five installments of Mister Rumbles by Jack Sparling. The strip started on April 18 1955 and lasted until sometime in 1956. Can anyone supply a definite end date?

The Eisner influence on Sparling is obvious here, but good art wasn’t enough to keep this strip afloat. I guess the world just wasn’t ready for an adult version of Barnaby or Calvin And Hobbes.
