Way back in the 1970s there was a comic shop in Portland called Old Weird Herald’s run by three women named Hazel, Luana, and Rosie. I visited the shop on NE Broadway only twice, but I’ll never forget two of the treasures discovered there.
First, Basil Wolverton originals. Among his many works was a comic strip called Woozie Woofer signed as Bay Wolverton. OWH’s had a handful of these old strips. There’s one available to view at Comic Art Fans.
Second, self-published comics by Kerry Lochner. OWH’s carried what seemed to be every Wallplug Publication available: Sundae Funnies, Super Baloney, and Picturead. Wonderful indie comics from the early 1970s.
