Seein' Stars by Feg Murray (1260-) 1st Color Sunday Sept 11, 1938- Frederic (Feg) Murray was an early hollywood beat writer and radio show MC in the 1930's.  In an era when multi-medium was necessary for success, Feg expanded into the comic pages with his offering Seein' Stars.  Beautifully drawn, this strip was an insight into the personal lives of the stage and screen stars of the day.  The format of the strip was a single panel with multi-scenes where space was available.   There was always a central character who got the attention of the reader, similar to the format that Ripley's Believe it or Not used.   The strip began as a Black and White sunday and was usually found in on the entertainment page of the newspaper.   In 1938 it found it's way into the sunday comics section as a full-color feature.    The strip participated in the premium era with it's offering of Comic Stamps of the Stars.  The market for Seein Stars is quite good and on the upswing.   Offered primarily as half-size or smaller, this strip has sales appeal both for the comic collector and for the movie buff.  As such, the pages with Hollywood's brightest stars sell best and command modest premiums.   Also the pages which have those comic stamps uncut command a modest premium.    Note the a special premium is placed on the Wizard of Oz opening strip.
