Mutt and Jeff and Cicero's Cat reprints

Al Smith (March 21, 1902 – November 24, 1986 ) was an American cartoonist whose work included a long run on the comic strip Mutt and Jeff.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Smith was the art editor for the syndication department of the New York World from 1920 to 1930. Bud Fisher appeared to lose all interest in his Mutt and Jeff strip during the 1930s, and after Mack died in 1932, the job of creating the strip fell to Al Smith.  The strip retained Fisher's signature until his death, however, and not until December 7, 1954 was the strip signed by Smith. 

These appeared in  All-American Comics #15 (June 1940), and are probably Sunday comics reprints.
