Frosty Aire is by Joe Archibald, who had a vigorous, only semi-professional style. While his art wasn’t going to win any awards, he was a pretty good writer. The gag here is surprisingly subtle considering the venue. Archibald kicked around with the smaller syndicates, mainly in the twenties. At the moment I happen to be trying to make sense of his panel cartoon Why Boys Leave Home. It was advertised only in the 1926 E&P listings as being from the Wheeler-Nicholson syndicate and credited to ‘Davidson’. Yet the only examples of the strip I can find are from 1930, syndicated by McClure, and credited to Joe Archibald. Huh???
