The Passing Scene – April 1968

April’s rapidly winding down, so here’s a round-up of Gene Patrick’s "The Passing Scene” comic that ran in the Lorain Journal this month back in 1968.

First up is the strip from April 6, 1968, in which Snoopy of Peanuts fame makes an unauthorized appearance. (Hey, where’s his collar?) We also get a funny cartoon about a pampered show cat.
Next we have the panel from April 13, 1968. Looks like Gene was doing his bit to promote the ‘Golden Crescent’ nickname. (I like how only the name LORAIN is readable.)
Lastly, we have the strip from April 20, 1968. I like the goofy expressions on the Art League women in the last cartoon, the idea for which is credited to Dave Wolfanger of Oberlin.
