Obscurity of the Day, Revisited: Posey County



 Although we already covered Frank Ladendorf's early panel feature, Posey County, it was with a pathetic 2-color example from my collection. Cole Johnson kicks in with some superb 4-color samples that are sure to knock your socks off. I know mine sure did take a powder. Great stuff. Thanks Cole!

Tomorrow tune in for an Ink-Slinger Profile of Ladendorf, with yet one more Posey County sample, plus more.

I was delighted to find the image of the prize fight. We have a copy of this 40 x 22.5 cm. that appears to be on a very thin piece of wood (like an especially thin shingle), rather than paper or cardboard. It's very fragile and we're missing the lower corner where Ladendorf's name should be, so I was not making any progress in identifying it until this came up. Have you ever seen one of Ladendorf's cartoons on wood? Were they sold this way or is this as odd as it seems?
Thanks for helping me identify the artist and history of the image.
