Panel of the Week - Sweet Home Chicago

We begin this feature with one of my favorites of early Stamm's work. Originally published on June 6, 1940, this panel of Scarlet looking outside her apartment in Chicago is a prime example of the incredible detail Russell Stamm put into his early strips. You can definitely see the influence working with Chester Gould had on his work. This panel also shows our heroine ready to take action when someone is in need.
