Sir Bagby, by Rick and Bill Hackney

Sir Bagby was written by Bill Hackney, drawn by brother Rick Hackney, and appeared from 1957-1966.  Syndicated by Bell-McClure, the strip never reached stardom, appearing in about 20 papers across the country (L.A. Times, Boston Globe, Louisville Courier-Journal, Chicago Sun-Times, etc.), developing a loyal following.  Sir Bagby was a tale of knights and kings, dragons and jesters, with a decidedly current flavor, satirizing the political scene and national and international problems in the manner of Pogo.
