I don't normally do a post just to tell you to go check another site; seems a bit of a cop-out. But I can't let the March 26 post on Yesterday's Papers
go by without directing you to it. John Adcock has unearthed a superb 1935 article about newspaper comics in something called New Outlook
. The article, written by William E. Berchtold, is incredibly well-researched. That's something you just never see from that era (about comics, that is).
Go and enjoy, and then we'll get back to business as usual tomorrow.
