Today’s comic is from April 3, 1974. It’s from Archie.

For our comic today I return again to The Ryatts, written by Cal Alley. While last week’s strip was from May 1, 1959, this week is from May 1, 1958.

Cal Alley also did a barefoot strip on May 1 in 1971. There seems to be something about that date that made him think about going barefoot . . .

Today we return to The Ryatts, which ran from 1954 to 1994. It was written by Cal Alley. This particular strip appeared on May 1, 1959.
