This is my sole example of a panel feature titled, obviously, The Doonks. It’s by Walt Scott and from 1933. Unfortunately the tearsheet I have doesn’t ‘fess up with the name of the newspaper, and the copyright is to Scott himself, so I’m at a reseach dead-end.
Does anyone recognize this series? I’m guessing Scott was doing it either for a particular paper or was trying to self-syndicate it. If someone can identify a paper it ran in, I can probably take things from there with a microfilm request.
Walt Scott was a workhorse in the NEA bullpen starting around the mid-30s. His best remembered feature is The Little People. He also did many of NEAs closed-end Christmas strips.
