Missed It: Fantagraphics Publishing Book of Jack Cole’s Betsy and Me Strip

So I was looking up R.C. Harvey's name to see what his next project was going to be after the publication of his massive Milton Caniff biography, and I was surprised and pleased to see that it looks to be some work on a collection of the existing work for Jack Cole's Betsy and Me for Fantagraphics. This was the newspaper strip that Cole launched in the Spring of 1958; the magnificently talented cartoonist killed himself when the strip was only a few months into syndication. I greatly look forward to the book. If you want to see some of the work and read a solid piece on the feature, Ron Goulart's article is the best on-line.
