Bill Hutchinson drew many, many comics for model aircraft magazines in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s (and maybe the 1940s, but I don't have any that old). A lot of them have been - and are yet to be - posted here on the Airplanes And Rockets website. "Competition Daze" comics appeared in the November 1950 issue of Air Trails magazine, and has a control line theme. Also being about competition, Mr. Hutchinson integrated a few sports-related ideas into the situation. Control line stunt, speed, and combat are amongst the subjects. I haven't figured out what the punch line is on comic #3. Anyone? My favorite is #9.
