The First Annie Sunday Page
Here we have the very first Little Orphan Annie Sunday page, printed in the Chicago Tribune on November 2, 1924. Am I nuts or does it look to you like Sals Bostwick had a hand in the art?
One of the reprint projects that I would dearly love to do is to get the first year of Little Orphan Annie into print. Unfortunately much of it was apparently printed only in the New York Daily News, and the microfilm for that paper is in terrible shape, not nearly good enough to reproduce from. Does anyone out there have a clipped run of the strip from the beginning? I know a lot of people would dearly love to read Annie's early continuity when she was still at the orphanage.
