Obscurity of the Day: Pip Gint
Clare Dwiggins did many different series featuring his School Days cast, and here's a short-lived version in which he concentrated on the musclebound prank-puller Pip Gint and his favorite victim, the bookworm Flossy. This was one of the New York World's quarter-page comics that ran from August 20 to December 3 1911*. Occasionally these quarter pagers were dropped from the World itself in favor of an ad, so it ran a little longer in the syndicated version of the Sunday section.
