Mopsy. by Gladys Parker  (0970-) 1st Appearance 1939, 1st Sunday 1945 - Mopsy was Gladys Parker's version of the modern woman of the 1940's and 50's.   Mopsy was a working girl and the center of attraction for many beaus.    Mopsy was given the ability to make smart, and biting quips at the faults of the men that followed her.  If there were any word balloons in a given week, this quip was usually it.   Collectors' attraction to the strip was the Paper Dolls which made their appearance on odd weeks.     The market for Mopsy pages with those Paper Dolls is quite good.     Pages without the Paper Dolls tend to only be attractive to completists.   Pity, the cleverness of the strip rivals Henry and The Little King amongst low dialogue strips.
