Here’s an old comic strip from May 19, 1955. It’s from Out Our Way by J. R. Williams.
Follow the daily life of Yenny Lopez, a Latina teen girl who lives with her mother Yunissa, her sea turtle Buke and a fast talking-iguana called Zacha at a modest wooden house complex in Villa Los Kubos, Puerto Rico.
Yenny dreams of becoming a famous model, but her big, giant feet stand in the way. In the meantime, she studies at the Carizzio Modeling College with high hopes of seeing her dream become a reality.
But if you have “big, giant feet”, you might as well use them.
This strip appeared last month.
He originally drew a comic for the first Earth Day in 1970. This 1971 version is similar, but for the second on he added the piece that makes it particularly poignant for barefooters.
This is also the origin of the famous tagline, “We have met the enemy . . . and he is us.”
