Speck is a well-intentioned, spirited, energetic, and often all-too-human boy of the cloth, there to serve, to support, and when possible, to mooch your sweet snacks!
Here, back in print for the first time in over 60 years, is the very first collection of Speck cartoons. “An Altar Boy Named ‘Speck'” started appearing in Catholic Action o the South (the newspaper of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans) in 1951, and by 1952 the comic was already being collected into books and was signed with a national distributor.
Unfortunately, the comic’s creator, W. R. “Tut” LeBlanc, passed away in 1953. The feature was taken over by cartoonist Margaret Ahern, who kept it running until 1979.
