DJ Comic Strip Character #27 By Bill Earl (1963)

Bill tells us that this artwork from 1963 just happened to be "accidently found" hidden behind a vertical beam in the family home garage in Arcadia CA, in the Summer of 1992, "lost" for 29 years!

It was found when cleaning out the family home for rental, after Bill's surviving parent moved to a townhouse that summer.

That former family home was sold two years later in 1994.

The garage has been extensively remodeled by the new 1994 owners.

This character was patterned after President Kennedy...who was assassinated in November 1963..just 5 months after this comic strip character was drawn.
