"It started in a barber shop in Warren, Ohio..." Today we meet the methodical man
who spurned cooked-up publicity feuds and gimmicks and made a sensation with only his pipes and his handsome five-foot nine-inch, 160-pound cleft-chinned self.
You'll guess soon enough who beat Crosby, Sinatra, and even Dick Haymes in the Billboard polls during the month of this issue of Picture News, issue #2, from February 1946 (artist and writer unknown).
We'll also learn about the wacky DJ from Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey who insults his radio sponsors on the air every morning - and they love it!
All this excitement awaits in our sixth Comic Supplement Section here at BOTB, come and join us right after the jump!
Thanks go out to Michael Barnes, who provided the fine scans (I did minimal 'cleanups' for once) for this issue, borrowed from the sagging digital shelves of comics over at the Digital Comics Museum, where some of our material for the Comics Supplement originates.
And let's also thank the only credited authors of this book:
News Editor Emile Gauvreau, and Art Director John A. Lehti, for an attractive comic book package!
