Chief Wahoo  (& Steve Roper)  by Saunders & Woggon (0300-) 1st Appearance November 1936 - Created by Allen Saunders and Elmer Woggon, Chief Wahoo was a humor strip pitting the Chief in a war of gags with his antagonist J. Mortimer Gusto (a WC Fields lookalike). From it’s inception in 1936 the strip was meant to tickle the funny bone of the reader. Wahoo lived in Teepee Town and his lovelife was dominated by Minnie-Ha-Cha.   It was during World War II that a big-town reporter named Steve Roper came to Teepee Town and slowly took over the strip. As Roper took over, the gags slowed and stopped, replaced by adventure and drama. The strip lives on today as Mike Nomad, making this one of the longest running drama strips ever.  Chief Wahoo sales are as limited pre-Roper, but the post Steve Roper strips are very hot sellers.  Steve Roper dailies are very hot as well, pre-Roper dailies not so much.
