The Long Slow Demise of Buster Brown, Part 6: July - September 1916
On August 27 there's no doubt in my mind that Ross is drawing Buster in drag.
I am going to guess and say Pitcairn had a template of the main characters that were used over and over again as standard poses, like in animation, which allowed others to have a hand in the strip when outcault was too busy. His strips have so much detail I can only have sympathy for the sheer amount of time it would have taken to get one of these up and ready for the presses on any given week. Dan.
