Bob Naylor’s birthday
Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Bob Naylor (15 February 1910 – unknown, USA) was an early strip cartoonist. He began as an in-house assistant artist at King Features Syndicate in 1928.
His first credit was on ‘Barney Baxter in the Air’ (1935–1950) when its creator had medical problems. Naylor produced the strip from 1942 to 1945, during which time its name became simply ‘Barney Baxter’.
In the late 1940s, he produced a revival of ‘Jerry on Job’, a 1913–1932 strip by Walt Hoban.
From 1954, he produced ‘Big Sister’, a strip that Les Forgrave had created in 1913. He continued with the strip until both he and it retired in 1972.
Some of Naylor’s ‘Barney Baxter’ work was reprinted in comic books, primarily in “King Comics” (David McKay, 1944–1947).
