Today we celebrate a cute Halloween with one of our favorite wacky witches in the world!Broom-Hilda a cute old witch with green skin, a wart on the end of her nose, and stringy hair. She always dresses in black, but wears a flower on top of her hat. Hilda is said to be Attila the Hun's ex-wife and is always unsuccessfully trying to land a new husband. Originally Hilda smoked cigars and drank like a sailor, but she seems to have mellowed out a bit in her old age.Broom-Hilda is a classic newspaper comic strip created by Russell Myers. It is distributed by the Chicago Tribune Syndicate and debuted on April 19, 1970. You can read the strip every day here.
