...I haven't time for a full post or a link:

  But , in my ham where I get a " local San Francisco news " site called " Hoodline " - They recently ran an OTR-centered piece , a look back at San Francisco-set soap opera " One Man's Family " .

  Try www.hoodline.com .

I have received 5 Facebook likes (so far) regarding my sharing of a post from the feed of my FB friend Skip Williamson showing his new grandson , Remy , held by his mother , Remy .

  Bluntly , to be Debbie Downer here , the post may have been put up by Skip's caretaker - Some years ago he was found fallen down and injured on the street , presumably from an attack/mugging , and can no longer take care of himself  , or draw professionally or speak , I guess , on a " normal " level for many years now .

...Looking up Bud Sagendorf , I see this old post of mine ~ I may have seen an argument that FAMOUS FUNNIES had some filler puzzle/joke/whatever from , if not the very beginning , pretty early on (Also , that FF used , as well as well-known/highly popular strips , made use of quite minor , nonsuccessful strips - Maybe even already discontinued ? ~ might as well have the syndicates make something back on them !!!!!!!!!) .

  In 1933 , Humor Publishing put out DETECTIVE DAN , one of three as-it-turned-out one-shots from this publisher which were in a larger-sized format which featured original comics material .

  I can't find the info on the other two issued , this computer has blocks on it for the likes of Toonopedia and GCBD ! :-( Detective Dan went on to a successful , if brief (by " big " newspaper strip standards) ,newspaper strip run as DAN DUNN .

  I have long seen that Siegel and Shuster submitted an early version of SUPERMAN to this publisher and that it was slated to be published ! But it never was , and that this , earliest known , vesion of the Kal-El story is lost...I saw a splash/presentation page from it?? , showing a waayy Art Deco rendition which is posted from DC -

  well , here - dcartists.com/superart/JOE_SHUSTER.htm !

For the 1933 one-shot, Famous Funnies-Carnival of Comics, the Grand Comics Database only lists the various strips showing characters and creators. There are no notations about the stories being reprints or new. It is likely they were all reprints because at the time the early comics were simply reprinting newspaper strips. The comic magazines (size/shape isn't important) were very popular and lucrative. Not until comics that could could easily be reprinted were exhausted did they go to the additional expense of adding new comics to the magazines. As far as I have ever heard New Fun #1(note the title) was the first one to include new material.

...In 1929 Dell attempted THE FUNNIES - which was , apparently , basically a stand-alone Sunday comic section  with entirely original comic strips nobody had ever heard of , with no Sunday newspaper attached , just as (as it turned out) the Depression was knocking upon the doorway !

  Brilliant idea , dudes .

...TheComicBooks does some more discussin' of pre-ACTION #1 CBs . Let's see if this link goes up !

   www.thecomicbooks.comnsp1-01.html

  It seems to say that Famous Funnies started including original material with the 2nd issue of the ongoing series .

Any other opinions you or I may have of
him aside- I found it encouraging that Donald Trump seemed to give encouragement to the space program in his Inaugural address ! :-)...

...How do you feel about one of : our : movies getting an Oscars Best Costumes\Hairstyling nod ?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was one of the movies nominated for costume design for the Oscars. I haven't seen it yet, but this is one of the categories that genre movies normally get as a back-handed compliment. There are rare exceptions, but most genre movies don't get acting, directing or best picture nominations, let alone win them, no matter how deserving.

...Thank you for thinking of another one , I was referring to SUICDE SQUAD .
Before the noms were announced I was aware of speculation that DEADPOOL might get a Best Picture nod , I saw a link to an article speculating that that I didn,t follow .

...I have found two comics-related useages NOT discussed in Wikipedia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One is " faan fiction ", the subdivision of fan fiction that is fiction ABOUT fans, or anout the fandow subculture/world.
The orher is " Mickey Mouse " - in its Big Band Era use as a pejorative term for Big Bands that were seen as overly corny and commercial by some dedicated music fans, as " bubblegum " and " corporate rock " were used by later generations - The Sammy Kaye and Guy Lombardo big bands were the two BBs most widely.tagged
/tarred with that tag/term (TTT!!!:-)!)
I made brief wider Google-looks for the concepts - There were some for " MM ", heavily in Google Books excerpts of older " A Look Back At The Fabulous, Swinging, Big Band Era! "-type tomes.
Bluntly, those who cared much about the Mickey tag are pretty generally now dead. It's not nice to speak ill of the dead, I suppose, and it's yesteryear's fandom dispute, for sure, for sure.
I remember my born-1924 father puffing away at his dislike of MM Kaye..........I believe rhere's a similar pejorative use of " MM " among film scoring buffs, but I didn't look that up. Academic " MM courses " were listed in Wiki!:-l
Faan fiction is always something I've read anout as having happened in The Golden Age Of Fandom, not now.:-( And I saw nothing about it in my G-brief, IIRC.

The pejorative "Mickey Mouse" is often used to deride certain types of people or rules in large organizations.

...Yes, that's true. Had you ever heard of the BBE usage? Since you were British-born, perhaps that term didn't take hold there among your father's generation.
