Kerry Drake by Alfred Andriola (0750-) - 1st Appearance October 1943 - Kerry Drake was one of the better Dick Tracy copy strips ever created.   Beginning in 1943, Kerry Drake was a Police Detective that would battle colorfully named villains just like the Tracy strip.   Kerry Drake was a high quality strip, Alfred Andriola had a good eye for what appealed to the public.  Kerry Drake was hard on the trigger and stringent of morals, qualities which made Dick Tracy popular.   Kerry Drake is credited as being the first to tackle the crime of the illegal drugs.  The strip was reasonably popular, lasting for 40 years.  The market for Kerry Drake is really quite good.  Mostly offered as Halves, Tabs or smaller, Sundays sell well at a modest premium over standard strip prices.   Dailies sell at a similar strong rate as the sundays.
