Sunday Comics: Uncle Harry’s Gold Mine, Part 6

Oh, no!  Uncle Harry signed the contract!!  But that’s not the end of the story–how could it be, with nephews like his?

This ten-part 1960 serial, written & illustrated by the prolific Frank Borth, originally appeared in Treasure Chest of Fun and Fact, which is maintained in Catholic University’s online archive.

You know, the tone of these reminds me of some of the classic Disney live action movies, like The Love Bug or Freaky Friday.  In fact, this serial wouldn’t make a bad movie itself!
