Obscurity of the Day: Here in Lincoln

Oz Black made a midwest cartooning career out of emulating Billy Ireland's Sunday magazine cover feature The Passing Show. Black's first and longest lived feature of that format was called Here in Lincoln, and it was produced for the Lincoln Journal and Star. Black didn't get the luxury of color here -- for that he would have to switch papers, and we'll cover that other feature tomorrow.

Here in Lincoln seems to have run about 1921-1940, perhaps with a layoff in 1928-29.

Thanks to Cole Johnson for the sample scan!
