During our last outing, we bid adieu to our friend W.W. Denslow with his August 03, 1902 strip. Billy Bounce would remain dormant for nearly two months until his return on September 28. The title still proudly featured a copyright in the name of Denslow, but something had definitely changed. Denslow’s name was nowhere to be found the next week and the following Sunday now had C.W. Kahles’s signature in the final panel, as seen above. Kahles would remain on the strip for the rest of its run. I have added the remainder of the 1902 pages, most of which are entirely new to the site (December 28 has been replaced by a better version).

We know you love Condo. We know you love cowboys. And we know you think you’ve seen it all, but beware! your brain might just crack in half as two worlds collide…ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to Deadshot Bill From Nurseryville! Bill is actually just a kid who fancies himself a cowboy, and his adventures are more cute-kid-stuff than Wild West shoot-em-up action, but I say close enough.
