FEARLESS FOSSDICK was a comic strip within a comic strip. It ran on and off for years in Al Capp's LI'L ABNER as a strip that was read by that character.
FEARLESS FOSDICK was a parody of DICK TRACY, but Fosdick himself was modeled after actor Jack Holt, famous for his movie tough-guy roles.
Today's exciting episode, featuring the Atom Bum, is from a 1956 reprint book FEARLESS FOSDICK...HIS LIFE AND DEATHS.
