LARRY BRANNON

LARRY BRANNON

This comic strip created James Winslow Mortimer and syndicated by the Toronto Star Syndicate ran for eight years from November 14 1960 to October 12 1968 in as many as 60 newspapers.

Mortimer left David Crane, a previous strip he had created to launch Larry Brannon. Actually the idea for Larry Brannon came to Mortimer before he started working on David Crane. Mortimer conceived him as a twenty-eight year old trouble shooter for a mining company a “dynamic young Canadian in a dynamic Canadian environment.”
