Jane Arden, by Russell Ross (1945)

Russell Ross worked at the art department of the Des Moines Register and Tribune in the 1930s. Among his first comic exploits was the Zane Grey strip 'Bullet Benton', which was later renamed to 'Slim and Tubby'. Ross was assigned to the 'Jane Arden' strip in 1935, when the original artist Frank Ellis suddenly didn't send his drawings anymore. The 'Slim and Tubby' character Tubby also switched comics and became Arden's regular side-character. Ross drew the 'Jane Arden' strip with text by Monte Barrett until 1952. He continued to draw the strip with writer Walt Graham until 1955, when he was succeeded by artist Jim Seed.
