Claire Voyant was an American syndicated comic strip created by cartoonist Jack Sparling. The strip premiered on May 10, 1943, in the New York newspaper PM, and continued until 1948. Her name is a pun on the French expression clair-voyant, which means fortune teller or physic.
Characters and story
The title character was discovered unconscious and adrift in a lifeboat. With no memory of her name or past, she called herself Claire Voyant. After several years, Claire was revealed to be Lyn Hall, a chorus girl. Lynn had been touring with the USO when the ship she was on was torpedoed by a U-boat.
The strip was carried by the Chicago Sun-Times syndicate and appeared in many national dailes. Some of the strips were later reprinted in comic book format by Standard Comics with covers by Jack Kamen. After the strip was dropped by the Sun-Times syndicate, there were no further appearances.
