Awhile back at a tag sale, I picked up a strange artifact of a bygone era — a collection of Woody Allen newspaper comic strips from 1978. Who knew that Woody Allen had a newspaper comic? I’m somewhat baffled as to where it might have run (as you probably will be after you see a couple samples), but according to the afterword, the strip was “syndicated in newspapers throughout the United States,” as well as in sixty foreign countries. The nineteen-seventies, go figure.
Update: an article on the history of this strip here. Apparently it ran in dailies, though I grew up in the midwest in the seventies, and really don’t recall “fellatio” jokes in the morning paper.
