These scans are from the 'Star Weekly' which I believe came as a supplement with the 'Toronto Star Weekly'. They all seem to have about twenty pages or thereabouts of quite nice strips which isn't bad for an addition to the paper.

Would anyone like to comment on it? I like the 'Hatlo's History' page, Popeye is also in the comic along with Nancy, Scamp, and others.

I have a fair sized collection of American Comic Supplements going back to about 1906. There were dozens of them published all over the states - collections of syndicated strips and known as the Sunday Funnies. Some are as large as The Big One UK comic which means they are hard to find in decent condition. In the UK the Mail on Sunday published a Cartoons section back in the 80s of which I have a couple of hundred. The Sunday Times produced the Funday Times and the Telegraph gave us Young Telegraph. The Daily Mirror produced a small Disney comic for a short while.

And don't forget the Sunday Post's Fun Section, which was famous for Oor Wullie and the Broons.
