Herriman Saturday

Sunday, November 24 1907 -- Once again Herriman is tapped to provide a Sunday magazine editorial cartoon for the whole Hearst chain. Here he tries to emulate the approach if not the style of Winsor McCay, whose editorial cartoons always had a sense of grandeur that was perfectly evocative of the Sunday sermons editorials dished up by Arthur Brisbane. In McCay's hand that wall would have stretched out to infinity and each rock and block would have been so real you'd swear you could touch it. Herriman's cartoon is okay, but these ever-so-solemn illustrations just weren't his forte.
