Bill Holman's Smokey Stover was my favorite comics as a kid back in Tinley Park, IL. A gag in every panel. Insane person pacing, contraptions, and getups. I read it every chance I could in the Chicago Tribune.
Now Tribune Media has put up scores of old Smokey Stover Comics at the official site. (Link also at pic.) The site is well Designed by Paradox Tulpa Arts, but some of the scans are poorly produced. It's still a wondeful source for Foo.
