A very Louise Brooks-looking comic strip character
Here is something I noticed for sale on eBay, which includes a very Louise Brooks-looking comic strip character. This syndicated comic strip was called "Frank Merriwel." It ran from 1930-1934, and featured a college kid named Frank that got in all sorts of adventures. The artist is Jack Wilhelm. In this particular 1931 strip, Frank is wooing a female character that looks very much like Louise Brooks. Anyone know much about this strip?
