Torchy Meets The Ratfields And McFoys

Torchy story from MODERN COMICS, circa 1948

Reblogged from http://pappysgoldenage.blogspot.com/






And it seems like I'd hardly put in the Superman and Li'l Abner crossover story on the blog than this Torchy story with Hillbillies turns up on Pappy's site. The girl known as "Sary May" is more or less Daisy Mae under a different name, although she's also another Torchy.

The real-life feud of the Hatfields and McCoys inspired a great deal of similar feuding in fictional stories of all kinds. Often, as in this case, the stories were supposed to be comedies. But the original feud had been no laughing matter.
