Mickey Finn by Lank Leonard  (0930-) 1st Appearance April 6, 1936, 1st Sunday May 17, 1936 - Mickey Finn was the delightful story of the an irish police officer and his lightly comical family.   Mickey Finn was created by Lank Leonard in the 1930's taking advantage of irish police stereotypes which permeated the films of that era.  Mickey was good-hearted and honest, but was a little on the slow-witted side which would help to draw out his storylines.  Mickey could usually be found investigating local crimes or dealing with the comic/soapish doings of his uncle Phil and his mother with whom he lived.    The strip was very popular in it's day.  It was carried in a rather large number of newspapers and lasted well into the 1970's.    The market for Mickey Finn is a bit slow. so both dailies and sundays can be obtained at economical prices..  Mostly found as Tabs, Halves or smaller, Fulls can be found for the earliest sundays until the early 1940's.
