Obscurity of the Day: Mister Hubby
Mister Hubby was his last new strip creation for the World, and also the last to end. It started on September 1 1912 and ended December 17 1916. It is not a fitting coda for Steinigans, who obviously preferred penning his dog strips. In fact Mister Hubby is quite bland, to the point where the title couldn't be much more generic.
According to reports on the web, Steinigans died in 1918 at the age of forty, less than a year after Mister Hubby ended.
