Go, Look: Alley Oop Exhibit Stuff


I don't know that I'd totally realized just how much stuff there is archived over at the University of Missouri in conjunction with their recent celebration of Alley Oop's 75th, including videos from the speakers. I don't think Alley Oop was in the pantheon of greatest strips ever, although plenty of people smarter than I am disagree with me on that. It's a blast to read, though, and certainly Hamlin carved space out of his two-dimensional platform more effectively than just about anyone ever to work in strips.
