King has also alerted clients that Henry will also be ending its run in syndication. King points out in its notice that Henry had been in reruns. Henry started with King in 1934. Henry’s last Sunday in syndication will be October 28th and its last daily on Saturday, October 27th.
From the King Features site:
Created by Carl Anderson by sheer accident, Henry attained world-renowned status as one of the great pantomime comic strips in the tradition of Otto Soglow’s The Little King.
At first, Henry spoke but a few words of dialogue, then Anderson decided to have him express himself through pantomime. Henry was so popular that it was often reprinted in the foreign press. In fact, it was because William Randolph Hearst saw a German translation of Henry in 1934 that he quickly signed Anderson into syndication with King Features Syndicate. The next year, the first Henry Sunday page appeared, and the silent little lad went on to star in a Fleischer Studios animated film and a book.
I might be nervous if I had a comic syndicated by King that started with H.
Could Hagar and Hi and Lois be next?
