Comic strips are big business -- and big business can be lethal! The profits from a successful strip can come to millions. So when Archie Judd -- the creator of "Poor Little Pearl" -- got sick, someone had to take over from him. To keep the strip going and the money rolling in. The the ghost artist was told he could continue to draw "Poor Little Pearl." The public would never know the difference. They would never know that Archie had been sick -- and that one day he disappeared completely! They would bever even know that he turned up again. Stone-cold dead!
