The Passing Scene – October 28, 1967

To finish up the week with a chuckle, here's an October edition of Gene Patrick's The Passing Scene from fifty years ago tomorrow. (I wonder how many of these I’ve posted since 2009?)

The strip ran in the Lorain Journal on October 28, 1967 and features Patrick's funny caricature of Lorain Mayor Woodrow Mathna debating an empty chair.

There’s also a clever Halloween gag, as well as a reference to Johnny Hart's "Midnight Skulker" recurring character in the popular B.C. comic strip (shown below).
