Today in Comics History: Moving from Bedrock to Manhattan proves profitable for financier


Panel from the Betty Bates story "Oil Found" in Hit Comics #30 (November 1943), pencils and inks by Al Bryant

Actually, that visually unclear date could be anything between July 20-29, but I don't have a tag named "Around This Point in Comics History."

A quick look at a 1942 calendar, shows that the 20th and 27th were Mondays in July.
