Henning Dahl Mikkelsen
He began the pantomime humor strip in Denmark in 1936, and because it had no dialogue or captions, it soon was circulated internationally. After World War II, he came to the United States, where he continued to do the strip while also profiting from California real estate.
He became a United States citizen in 1954. In 1970, he turned the strip over to Al Plastino.
Mikkelsen died unexpectedly, from a heart attack, in 1982 at age 67. He was survived by his wife Jessie, three daughters, a son and three grandchildren.
