Tuesday, December 10 1907 -- Today Herriman inaugurates his first new series for the Examiner in over seven months. The opening of the Santa Anita track has Angelenos excited about horse-racing, and Herriman obliges with a series that follows in the footsteps of Clare Briggs' A. Piker Clerk and Bud Fisher's A. Mutt. Mister Proones the Plunger will run through December 26, but I'll only be showing this first episode on the blog since the series has been reprinted. To read the rest of the series I direct you to the Spec Productions/Bill Blackbeard reprint series available here. The reproduction of the strips is excellent and I highly recommend it.
