The first Hi and Lois Sunday page ran on October 14, 1956. Here is a classic example from the following year. Hi and Lois Sunday page color proof, September 1, 1957. Hi and Lois Sunday page color proof, September 1, 1957. This page showcases the style Dik Browne used in the early days of the strip, which was more typical of his advertising work. His love of detail is evident in the final panel. As the strip evolved throughout the 1950s and 60s, his technique became cleaner, with elegant line work and less cluttered layouts. Although this page was republished in black-and-white in the 1986 book The Best of Hi and Lois, this is the first time it has appeared in color since the original publication date. Stay tooned for more vintage Hi and Lois art from the early days of the feature. – Brian Walker
