Obscurity of the Day: Kid Klub

After Wallace Goldsmith gave up doing his long-running Little Allright strip for the Boston Herald's Sunday comic section he switched over to a panel cartoon titled Kid Klub. Kid Klub's large panoramas full of joke-filled vignettes recalls the even-then good old days of Outcault's Yellow Kid and Swinnerton's Little Tigers. 

Kid Klub began on January 26 1908 and ended when the Herald finally gave up on their homegrown Sunday section for the third and last time on August 9 1908. At least one paper, the Evansville Journal-News, ran the section until August 30 but they might have just been three weeks behind. 

A tip of the tam to Cole Johnson for the sample!
