Obscurity of the Day: Flicky Flim the Fakir
You see above the entire run of an early Roy W. Taylor strip, Flicky Flim the Fakir (or Faker, once Roy looked up 'fakir' in the dictionary). Flicky is a salesman whose showmanship is guaranteed to draw a crowd ... and then make them want to murder him. The strip ran in the newly hatched Chicago Tribune Sunday section on November 24 and December 8 1901.
Thanks to Cole Johnson for the scans.
