Our Boarding House (Major Hoople) by Gene Ahern (1060-) 1st appearance 1921, 1st Sunday 1924 - The antics of Major Hoople was the centerpoint of over 60 years of Our Boarding House.  Created in 1921 by Gene Ahern, the daily strip was always a single panel gag strip usually illustrating the boastful eccentricities of Hoople.   The rotund fez-capped Hoople was semi-delusional in portraying his own self importance.   Hoople was actually the retired husband of Martha, the owner of the Boarding House.    Together, they would service many an unusual boarder through many eras.   The market for Our Boarding House is quite strong, but equally strong supply keeps the prices reasonable.    Collectors love the full-color fulls of the 1930's.   Dailies sell just as well as sundays.(40/70)
