Diana Dillpickles returns in “Miss Dillpickles Builds a House After Her Own Design, Showing What a Bright Girl Can Do When She Has Full Swing.” From Fred Shaefer with W. Aird MacDonald supplying the visuals this time around. Six parts; start with the one above.
Clifton Meek’s Nobody sprung out of nowhere near the beginning of 1912 to frustrate folks in need of a hand but sadly did not make it to 1913. The repetitive nature of the gags probably did it in, though looking at our few samples, Meek certainly manages to wring some chuckles out of these initial offerings at least. I definitely appreciate the look of the title character, no body and all…perhaps a bit too on the nose, but when has that ever been an issue for the funny pages?
