Herriman Saturday

In July Tommy Burns successfully defended his heavyweight title against Bill Squires, knocking him out in dramatic fashion in just one round. As 1907 comes to a close, Burns, who wanted to truly be a worldwide heavyweight champion, traveled to Europe in search of bouts with their champs. Jim 'Gunner' Moir of England was his first fight on the trip, and Herriman thinks very little for Burns' chances.


Do you have any information on a strips called Mom'n Pop/ The Newfangles. I picked up 4 years of it and cant find any info on it or the history behind it. I was drawn by Woods Cowan. Thanks -Steve
Loren Taylor created Mom 'n' Pop in 1924 and Wood Cowan took it over in 1928. The strip was renamed The Newfangles in 1932 and ended in 1936.
