It’s been awhile since I’ve posted one of these Friday Flashbacks, and it had got to the point where I had almost decided to just drop the feature entirely from this site, but a recent find was just too great to not share and this is the perfect venue.
George Feyer was inducted into the Giants of the North Canadian Cartoonist Hall of Fame way back in 2009 and I published a small booklet of his cartoons to commemorate the occasion. Among the cartoons in the book were a number of strips headlined “Feyer Play,” a feature the Hungarian-born artist shopped around to a number of print venues, including Maclean’s Magazine and Weekend, examples of which I have slowly been collecting for years now. This appears to be the first appearance of the strip, accompanied by a short bio and photo of Feyer himself, from a 1958 issue of Weekend Magazine (Weekend Vol 8, #10).
