Days 20 and 21 wer somewhat relaxing for me -- only two characters, and ones I knew well. One of the things that has made this sequence so enjoyable is the way Scancarelli not only draws these vintage characters in their original style (or very close to it), but how he also has them act as they should.

Fearless Fosdick, as a parody of Dick Tracy, was always completely incompetent and never arrives at the right solution -- as he does here. Maggie, in George McManus' early strips, was a short-tempered harridan who was not to be crossed -- as she is here. Great fun!
