Italian writer, cartoonist, and illustrator Giancarlo Malagutti has written about Hoosier cartoonist Roy Anderson Ketcham on a blog called afNews.info. Signor Malagutti's article is entitled "Il Caso di Della Street e il Fumetto" ("The Case of Della Street and the Comic") and it is dated December 2, 2014. You can access it by clicking here. Signor Malagutti contacted me recently about Roy A. Ketcham and his newspaper comic strip Bowleg Bill/Ramblin' Bill (1939-1941). It is because of Signor Malagutti that I found out that Ketcham was not only an illustrator but also the cartoonist on a Western comic strip syndicated in papers nationwide. I am much indebted to Giancarlo Malagutti and wish to say to him mille grazie!
