Today in Comics History, May 24: Happy birthday, Alfred Andriola!

Born today in 1912: the handsome, handsome Alfred Andriola (check 'im out below!), cartoonist and creator of the Kerry Drake comic strip and book, artist on Charlie Chan, Dan Dunn, Captain Triumph and more, and an assistant to Milton Caniff on Terry and the Pirates and Scorchy Smith. And yes: you can use this calendar all this year throughout 2022!

Happy birthday, Alfred!

Nah that's just Kerry again. You can see Andriola on his Lambiek page.

Oh, that makes sense, thanks! I didn't think Kerry had white hair.

You'd think he'd be a gentleman and remove his hat for us!
