Checkout Hi & Lois client list timeline

The Archivist over at the King Features blog has posted an interesting graphic/timeline created by Dik Browne that highlights the rise of his client list from launch (1954) to 1000 papers (1984).

Why does the chart stop at 1984?

I think that was the year it hit 1000 papers

That’s really cool…I’d be interested to see something similar for other strips, like Peanuts, which went from 5 to 2000 papers in 33 years. The graphic shows that once Hi & Lois got to approximately 770 papers in mid-’79, it went almost straight up for the next 5 years until it reached the big 1K.

That was the year he drew it.
