Obscurity of the Day: Sallie Slick and her Surprising Aunt Amelia
Sallie Slick and her Surprising Aunt Amelia ran for one year in the Philadelphia North American, from May 4 1902 to April 26 1903. Mohr sort of takes the Foxy Grandpa concept of a surprisingly spry, wily oldster and sends it off on her own trajectory. The result is a delightful series, attractively drawn, with quite a few clever gags.
Thanks to Cole Johnson for the samples!
