    Again, a larger strip image is shown by merely clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK THURSDAY: MASTERPIECE #1985 (6/29/18) (October 5, 2022) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu. I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to the artist info I used to point to here. First work by this artist used here (2 times total, including this Throwback Thursday repeat), the June 29, 2018, strip being its first use. The first URL pointed to in my comment there has been deleted. Since I couldn’t quickly locate a strip coloration image to post to WC, I used the museum’s different coloration image.
