Who Needs Coloring Books When You Have Comics?!

 

The actual comic strips clipped out of the newspaper and colored by a Snuffy Smith reader in Monterey, Virginia!

I recently received a charming letter in the mail from a Snuffy Smith fan in Monterey, Virginia.  As you can see in the photo above, each black and white comic strip is cut out of the newspaper and colored with crayons.  In the note she sent along with these comics, she says that she is 85 years old and enjoys my Snuffy Smith comics.  She then goes on to write, “I have been coloring them for years–who needs a coloring book?!” She may be onto something!   Get out your crayons and color your favorite comic strips!
