New Strip! A Trip to Mars!


Welcome to Mars, a dreamland where waiters never accept tips and there’s always a seat waiting for you on the subway!  W. Clyde Spencer’s delightful A Trip To Mars follows the exploits of a husband and wife honeymooning in the most exotic of destinations.  I love the martian character designs, especially those “armfins.”  Sure, each & every episode builds up to a punchline concerning how things are so different 95,000,000 miles from home, but there are a lot of wacky touches here and there that make this strip a lot of fun.  Go ahead, climb aboard that rocket ship and take a trip to Mars right now!

    One place this strip can be found online is in the 1911 Omaha Bee, available at Chronicling America. The panel shown above is from March 27.
