Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn (School Days, Checkers) by Clare Dwiggins(1490-) 1st Appearance under name 1918 - It was in 1918 that Clare Victor 'Dwig' Dwiggins negotiated the use of Samuel Clemens' classic characters including Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn for a sunday comic-strip.   Dwiggins was already a cartoonist of some note having gained notoriety for a 'school days' humor daily.   In Tom Sawyer, Dwiggins had a vehicle for his humor that would have a built-in demand.  The action of the strip was usually the misadventures of Tom and Huck, always playful but relatively innocent.    This style of humor would continue beyond the deadline for Dwiggin's permission to use the Tom Sawyer character names.    That deadline forced Dwiggins to modernize the strip to just 'School Days' and rename characters to avoid legal entanglements.  The strip further redefined itself with a focus on a special character, Checkers, in it's final days.  The market for Tom Sawyer is moderate.    Mostly offered as fulls, collectors tend to navigate toward full-color versions where available.  Dailies actually sell better than sundays thanks to increased rarity.
