The Long Slow Demise of Buster Brown, Part 5: April - June 1916

Outcault seems to have gotten a second wind with the introduction of Smithy. This Alfred E. Neuman-faced kid drives a whole new direction to the strip, offering Buster a worthy nemesis. Better than typical Outcault art and gags, almost classic I'd say, during this whole three month period:

Here on May 21 I finally think I detect a little Ross influence, but its so minor that I might well be fooling myself.
