Our final look at the Keane oeuvre concerns this cute little feature titled Eggheads. Apparently it started on 9/28/1981, and I’ve seen no examples later than 1982. However, a reprint book from Fawcett was published in 1983 that does not mention the demise of the strip, so perhaps it soldiered on a little while longer. Syndicated by Register & Tribune Syndicate, I regrettably did not even find this strip running in the home paper.
The humor of Eggheads abounds in puns and groaners, and the Mutt And Jeff style ‘takes’ in the final panel are a standard feature.
According to the blurb on the book, Bil drew roughs and son Jeff Keane did the finished drawings.
