Leonard Starr's Mary Perkins On Stage Volume 8 - Update - 11/24/2010
Things are moving along nicely with Volume 8. It's a wonderful volume, just as strong as Volume 7. The best thing is that Leonard and Jim found some missing proofs from the Captain Virtue storyline. Years ago, when Blackthorne reprinted the CV storyline they cut up the proofs and reassembled them on the page to resemble a comic book page. By doing this they basically made useless the cut up proofs and it took Jim quite some time to recompose the panels in the right order. I'd decided to replace all these cut up proofs with the best clipping I could find and was working on those when Jim informed me they found another set of the missing proofs. A couple of days later I got them in the mail and Voila! we've managed to replace every missing daily with a high-quality proof. Sometimes the comic strip gods are smiling down.
