Joe Kubert "Winnie Winkle" 3

Recently I acquired this original Winnie Winkle, daily comics strip. Dated September 29, '81. This one is drawn by Joe Kubert and his school. And it actually turned out that Joe drew most of the comics, especially towards the end. As Joe told The Comics Journal in 1994: "I suddenly found myself doing the whole strip by myself. So I just dropped it."
I bought this stip is not only because I already own one, which was published a day before, on September 28, '81, but also because it seems to me because of crunch time, Joe decided to almost recycle the drawing of the face from the day before. 

I always said if you must steal, it's best to steal from yourself. Nobody can sue you.
