Alex Toth's Newspaper Strip

The 1965 film How to Murder Your Wife starred Jack Lemmon as fictitious cartoonist Stanley Ford who concocted nefarious ways to perform the title deed.

In the two weeks prior to the theatrical release of the film, a comic strip titled Steve Bentley, Secret Agent credited to "Stanley Ford" was published in The Hollywood Reporter and in some newspapers. There were twelve of these daily strips produced and in fact they were drawn by comics master Alex Toth!

Here are four of the strips, and you can view the full set of twelve over at The Alex Toth Archives.
