This set of entries includes some pretty interesting sight gags. And the artist could stand his ground with any comic artist today. This strip is pretty funny too, and I like the site editor's comments.
So a long while ago, I started the above thread, and now you can see why I was asking (aside from my own interest in comic book/comic strip history).
Here at work we have a secondary website for kids called Junior Dispatch, and I try to have a variety of activities and (for lack of a better term) promotions on it.
Well, about a month ago, I launched a "Phil Hardy" feature, which you can see here, and as one of the sub-categories of the "front page" of the site.
Each "edition" of Phil Hardy comes with its own lesson or activity for kids and adults to participate. Usually these are just simple things like watching a related video or visiting an educational site.
