In 1958 Jack Cole set his sights on a syndicated newspaper strip. He hit the bull's eye with Betsy and Me, a breezy domestic farce focusing on a middle-class urban couple and their smart-alec genius son. Betsy and Me was an instant success, but only two-and-a-half month's worth of strips were completed before Cole ended his life. This is the entire collection of the Betsy strips, which also includes a contextual introduction by R C Harvey.
